Lehahayer https://journals.akademicka.pl/lehahayer <p>The journal is scholarly, peer-reviewed annual. It aims to intensify research on the culture and history of the Polish Armenians and bring these issues back to the scientific consciousness. This choice of title is not accidental. As a result of the change of borders after the Second World War, the actual cultural dimensions of the Polish Armenians were blurred. They fell into a political inheritance in Ukraine, and many of those who write about their history from the 14th to the 20th century are not aware of the real dimensions, the real identity of this political, social, economic, and cultural space, in which they existed and worked.</p> Księgarnia Akademicka Sp. z o.o. en-US Lehahayer 2082-6184 Front Matter https://journals.akademicka.pl/lehahayer/article/view/4369 Copyright (c) 2021 https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 2021-12-19 2021-12-19 8 Back Matter https://journals.akademicka.pl/lehahayer/article/view/4383 Copyright (c) 2021 https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 2021-12-19 2021-12-19 8 Karta ze stosunków rodzinnych Ormian zamojskich. Morderstwo Heleny Kistesterowiczowej (1680) https://journals.akademicka.pl/lehahayer/article/view/4370 <p><strong>A card from the family life of Zamość Armenians. Murder of Helena Kistesterowiczowa (1680)</strong></p> <p>Death of Helena Kistesterowiczowa, who was murdered by her husband only one year after their marriage, was the most shocking event in the history of the Zamość Armenian commune. On the basis of case files and other sources, the author presents circumstances of this crime and course of the case. Analysing the testimonies of the accused and witnesses as well as the report about examination of the corpse, he reconstructs the events, depicting relations in the marriage of Kistesterowicze, for which the conflict between Eliasz Kistesterowicz and his father-in-law Serhij Zachariaszewicz Browar was the background. This affair constitutes a minor contribution to family relations of Zamość Armenians in the second half of the 17th century.</p> Marcin Łukasz Majewski Copyright (c) 2021 https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 2021-12-19 2021-12-19 8 5 41 10.12797/LH.08.2021.08.01 Ormianie kamienieccy w ostatniej ćwierci XVII wieku. Uzupełnienie spisu imiennego na podstawie kolejnych źródeł https://journals.akademicka.pl/lehahayer/article/view/4371 <p><strong>Kamieniec Armenians in the last quarter of the 17th century. Supplementation of the name list on the basis of subsequent sources</strong></p> <p>The author uses subsequent historical sources to supplement the data about Armenians living in Kamieniec Podolski (Kamianets-Podilskyi) before the Turkish invasion in 1672 and soon after regaining the town by Poland in 1700. These sources include: book of the Armenian court of Kamieniec Podolski from 1651-1663; registers of church apparatus taken away from Kamieniec and their gradual sales; Turkish censuses of the people of Kamieniec Podolski, including Armenians, from 1681.</p> Monika Agopsowicz Copyright (c) 2021 https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 2021-12-19 2021-12-19 8 43 104 10.12797/LH.08.2021.08.02 Ormianie Mohylowa Podolskiego pod koniec XVIII i w połowie XIX wieku (na podstawie pomiarów statystycznych ludności) https://journals.akademicka.pl/lehahayer/article/view/4372 <p><strong>Armenians in Mohylów Podolski (Mohyliv-Podilskyi) at the end of the 18th century and in the middle of the 19th century (on the basis of the statistical measurement of the people)</strong></p> <p>The author presents the analysis of five statistical sources which document social and demographical character of the Armenian commune in Mohylów Podolski from the end of the 18th century to the middle of the 19th century. These sources include: inventory of the town form 1772 and the so-called revisions, conducted on the order of the Russian authorities in 1795, 1811, 1834 and 1850. As a result, it as possible to determine the names of at least 600 Mohylów Armenians from 70 families. Moreover, the thesis was confirmed that Armenians in this town constituted the distinct and privileged social group, which – as Vartan Grigoryan already believed – was declining, primarily because of the unfavourable economic situation after the incorporation of Podole into Russia.</p> Мaksym Potapenko Copyright (c) 2021 https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 2021-12-19 2021-12-19 8 105 146 10.12797/LH.08.2021.08.03 Z materiałów źródłowych do dziejów Ormian w zasobie Archiwum Państwowego w Przemyślu: biskupa Franciszka Ksawerego Zachariasiewicza wypisy i szkice do „Wiadomości o Ormianach w Polszcze” https://journals.akademicka.pl/lehahayer/article/view/4373 <p><strong>From source materials concerning the history of Armenians</strong><strong> in the resource of the State Archive in Przemyśl.

List arcybiskupa Gabriela Ajwazowskiego do ojca Sadoka Barącza z 1875 roku https://journals.akademicka.pl/lehahayer/article/view/4374 <p><strong>Minor contribution to the Armenian-Polish lineage of </strong><strong>Aivazovsky family. A letter of the Archbishop Gabriel Aivazovsky to the Father Sadok </strong><strong>Barącz from 1875</strong></p> <p>In the correspondence of the Father Sadok Barącz OP, the historian of Polish Armenians, kept in the Library of the National Ossoliński Institute in Wrocław, there is a letter from the Armenian Archbishop Gabriel Aivazovsky, the brother of the painter Ivan. Robert Bogdanowicz, an Armenian landowner from Galicia, was the agent in contacts of these scholars. The letter relates to the family tradition of Aivazovskys concerning their origin from the community of Polish Armenians from the town of Stanisławów. Although the letter was already used in source literature, it has never been completely analysed. The article presents a letter edition in the original French language and translation into the Polish language, as well as an attempt of the letter data verification based on certificates of Armenian and Catholic parishes in Galicia against the biography of the author of the letter.</p> Marek Miławicki Copyright (c) 2021 https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 2021-12-19 2021-12-19 8 157 184 10.12797/LH.08.2021.08.05 „Raumkunst” autorstwa Teodora Axentowicza https://journals.akademicka.pl/lehahayer/article/view/4375 <p><strong>Raumkunst by Teodor Axentowicz</strong></p> <p>Three exhibition arrangements analysed in the article – the halls of Polish artists on the exhibitions in St. Louis (1904), London (1906) and XI International Biennial of Art in Venice (1914) – allow us to consider Teodor Axentowicz as a precursor of the new form of organisation of the exhibition space within the Polish culture. This form was a pattern for the subsequent architects of exhibitions belonging to the Society of Polish Artists “Art”. Projects of Axentowicz perfectly fitted to the modern style of exhibition interior arrangement, which was promoted by the Viennese environment of “Secession” at the turn of the 20th century.</p> Stefania Krzysztofowicz-Kozakowska Copyright (c) 2021 https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 2021-12-19 2021-12-19 8 185 190 10.12797/LH.08.2021.08.06 Grisza Aszwajanc i inni Ormianie w trylogii ukraińskiej Józefa Łobodowskiego https://journals.akademicka.pl/lehahayer/article/view/4377 <p><strong>Grisha Ashvayants and other Armenians in the Ukrainian </strong><strong>trilogy of Józef Łobodowski</strong></p> <p>The article analyses the image of Armenians and their fate in the novel cycle of the Polish emigratory writer Józef Łobodowski (1909-1988). This cycle, called the Ukrainian trilogy (Komysze, 1955; W stanicy, 1958; Droga powrotna, 1960), is based on experiences of the author, who spent his youth in Kuban during World War One and the period shortly after the Bolshevik revolution. In this trilogy, Armenians do not constitute only the oriental decoration. Writing about these people, Łobodowski realised more serious intention. He seems to indicate that friendship between the novel hero Staś Majewski and the Armenian boy Grisha Ashvayants means not only incredible adventures but primarily the effective alliance of the weak against threatening powers. This alliance is not only individual but also uniting even the whole nations.</p> Grzegorz Pełczyński Copyright (c) 2021 https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 2021-12-19 2021-12-19 8 191 204 10.12797/LH.08.2021.08.07 Jan Hasso Agopsowicz (1915-1982). Ormianin, bibliofil, twórca ekslibrisów https://journals.akademicka.pl/lehahayer/article/view/4378 <p><strong>Jan Hasso Agopsowicz (1915-1982) – Armenian, Bibliophile, Creator of Bookplates</strong></p> <p>The article presents the biography of Jan Hasso Agopsowicz (1915-1982), Polish Armenian, full of merit for the Armenian environment in Poland. He was born in Kociubińce, Eastern Galicia, in the Armenian landowning family. In 1931- 1938 he studied in Rome, at the Papal Armenian College and Gregorian University, preparing himself for the adoption of priestly orders in the Armenian rite. In October 1938 he resigned from finalisation of the theological studies and returned to Poland. After World War II, he lived in Nowy Sącz, where he was a manager of the analytical laboratory in the municipal hospital. Agopsowicz focused a lot on the situation of the Armenian diaspora in Poland and the activity of the Armenian environment. He wanted to guarantee the pastoral care for Catholic Armenians in Poland and to ensure the persistence of the Armenian rite so he intervened with the Holy See and Primate Stefan Wyszyński. Furthermore, he engaged in artistic activity. Creation of bookplates was his passion – he designed 240 bookplates. Interests of Agopsowicz concerning the Armenian history and culture, as well as his numerous contacts with Armenians, led to the creation of several dozen bookplates with Armenian themes. Moreover, he gathered a large book collection relating to Armenian themes in different languages. He died in Nowy Sącz and was buried at the Rakowicki Cemetery in Krakow.</p> Tomasz Krzyżowski Copyright (c) 2021 https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 2021-12-19 2021-12-19 8 205 232 10.12797/LH.08.2021.08.08 Tajemniczy napis z obrazu Matki Boskiej Ormiańskiej w Kamieńcu Podolskim https://journals.akademicka.pl/lehahayer/article/view/4379 <p><strong>Mysterious writing from the picture of the Armenian Mother of God in Kamieniec Podolski (Kamianets-Podilskyi)</strong></p> <p>The author, on the basis of Jacek Chrząszczewski’s publications, corrects reading of the writing left on the miraculous picture of the Kamieniec Mother of God from the Armienian church of St Nicholas in Kamieniec Podolski (Kamianets- Podilskyi), made by editors of the recent German translation of Minas Bzhshkyants’ work Podróż do Polski [Journey to Poland] dated at 1830.</p> Andrzej Pisowicz Copyright (c) 2021 https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 2021-12-19 2021-12-19 8 233 237 10.12797/LH.08.2021.08.09 Refleksje o Ormianach polskich na marginesie pracy „Ormiańska Polska” https://journals.akademicka.pl/lehahayer/article/view/4380 <p><strong>Reflections about Polish Armenians on the margin of the work “Ormiańska Polska”</strong></p> <p>The author discusses the work Ormiańska Polska [ Armenian Poland] written by Krzysztof Stopka and Andrzej A.
