The Architecture

Gothic architecture is a misnomer: there’s nothing Gothic about it. Three of the most prominent structural innovations of “Gothic” architecture” such as clustered columns, ribbed vaults, and pointed arches were created in Ani in the 10th century, a full century before their appearance in Europe. It’s believed that the influence of Armenian architects was transmitted to Italy and France through the Balkans and by the Crusaders.
