Scholars from a range of countries and disciplines explore current trends and everyday religiosity, particularly within the Armenian Apostolic Church (AAC), and amongst Armenian Catholics, Protestants and vernacular religions. Themes examined include: Armenian grass-roots religiosity; the changing forms of regular worship and devotion; various types of congregational life; and the dynamics of social composition of both the clergy and lay believers.

Accentuation of attention on features allows understanding: why connection of religion and policy are shown not in all countries, why the existing communications can be transformed and not join the existing conception and why religious delimitation is steady.
