Vardan Mamikonian, Saint


Vardan Mamikonian, Saint
died 451

Armenian military commander.

The Persian attempt to impose Zoroastrianism on the Armenians provoked a rebellion, which ended when Vardan and his companions were slain at the Battle of Avarayr. Despite their victory the Persians renounced their plans to convert Armenia by force, and they deposed the traitorous Armenian governor.
