Dear Madam, Sir, I work in Armenian Studies in the Oriental Institute, right next door and only now have become aware of the Love in Religion project. I would be very grateful if you would keep me informed of your activities. As a student of medieval Armenian literature the theme of love in religion is one I encounter every step of the way.
