This work draws its inspiration from one of the most significant events in Armenian history: the Battle of Avarairi, 451 A.D. The Battle of Avarairi, a conflict waged to defend the presence of Christianity in Armenia, is poignant testimony to the long struggle that the Armenian people carried out under the leadership of Vardan Mamikonyan.
