Jul 30, 2007
YEREVAN, JULY 30, NOYAN TAPAN. The jubilee celebration held in the
National Academy of Sciences of Armenia on July 27 was dedicated to
the 80th anniversaries of Hamlet Gevorgian (philosopher-Armenologist)
and Hrach Bartikian (historian-Byuzandologist), who are prominent
Armenologists, scientists and academicians.
Congratulating the two deserved and grey-headed scientists, Radik
Martirosian, the Chairman of the National Academy of Sciences,
mentioned that they have passed a true way of an intellectual and
devoted all their lives to science. "Their scientific activities
were great in the sphere of their profession, as well as in that of
adjacent sciences, including Armenology," Radik Martirosian stressed.
According to Ashot Melkonian, the Head of the Institute of History of
the National Academy of Sciences, extreme modesty is characteristic
of the two scientists: "They have never been proud of their works and
till now they turn red like a teenager every time they are addressed
with words of appraisal."
