It is the first attempt not only to bond the Armenian amulets with the diverse cults and popular beliefs but also to reveal their functions and purposes in everyday life and rituals. the book is expected to be in the best interests of ethnographers, archaeologists, art theorists and those who feel curious about popular traditions, customs and rites in general.
