We need only think of some characteristic solutions, such as the compotion along two diagonal axes within a square perimeter of the church-like buildings at Sanahin, or the layout along a line, almost resting against an inexistent backcloth (which is provided by the landscape) of the churches and chapels at Ketcharis, or the more articulate solution of Haghardzin, even though it is still laid out on two perpendicular lines. The example of Sanаin leads us to point out, apart from the essential historical-descriptive references already mentioned, certain unusual aspects of this fascinating complex which, in one sense, form a kind of summary of architectural experiences in the Armenian world from the X to the XIII centuries. We are dealing with a period in which a full reflowering of culture, especially architecture, took place after the general decline of the country under Arab domination.
