A SHORT SURVIEW OF THE EDUCATIONAL AND ENLIGHTENING ACTIVITIES
OF THE MEKHITARIAN ORDER UNDER THE OTTOMAN EMPIRE
 
SHOGHIK VOSKANYAN
 
 
Elucidating the educational activities of the Mekhitarists we have the intention to reveal some details which were characteristic for all the fathers of the Congregation.
 
The holy mission of the Congregation fathers, alongside with their doctrine, was to spread light, hope and science among Armenians, and that was their credo and the main direction of their activities. As faithful devotes of their duty, they had to forget their person, to risk their life, constantly undergo persecutions, betrayals, calumnies, they were accused and doubted, they had to face vengeance, malice and hatred, but nevertheless, they always tried to remain faithful to their ideas of enlightenment and never did they betray the orders of Mekhitar Sebastatsi.
 
One mustn’t forget that the main goal of the Mekhitarists’ enlightening activities was first of all the paramount idea of educating in schools Armenians having lost their sovereignty and their national independence, living under the yoke of a stranger imperialistic state, or dispersed all over the world, and thus lead them to preserve their national dignity and identity. To realize this idea they used all their either material, physical, moral and religious possibilities or available potential and advantages.
 
The Soviet Armenian historiography and pedagogy, getting round a series of important circumstances, considered their enormous, rich and substantial activities exclusively from the confessional viewpoint, pointing out only their being of service to the Vatican, the citadel of Catholicism. Meanwhile their fruitful enlightening activities of three hundred years, the schools they founded and their outstanding feats in the sphere of education need supplementary studies, new interpretations, new appreciation and estimation.
