THE MOVEMENT OF THE HOLY TRANSLATORS
In the 5th century, thanks to the Holy Translators, St. Mesrop, St. Sahak and their disciples, the Armenian alphabet, literature, music and school were created. Working together these geniuses started a movement that sustained the Armenian nation through the centuries ensuring its cultural continuity and integrity to this day. This unique movement, its spiritual values and educational mission laid the foundation of Armenian identity.
AYB AS A NEW MOVEMENT OF THE HOLY TRANSLATORS
Ayb seeks to revive the spirit of the Holy Translators. It has brought together people from around the world, individuals who recognize the importance of education and are willing to invest in it. Today, Ayb is building the architecture of Armenia’s new education with systemic solutions designed for today’s world. Each Ayb member enriches and empowers the movement of the Holy Translators, contributing ideas, experience and energy, in order to open a new path for future generations.

THE HOLY TRANSLATORS CHURCH IN THE AYB CAMPUS
The presence of a church at the Ayb Learning Hub symbolizes the existential relationship between knowledge and moral values. A testimony to the Armenian spiritual legacy, the church aims to promote a moral generation and to secure the spiritual future of the Armenian people. For centuries, the Armenian Church and School worked hand in hand, ensuring the spiritual and national unity of Armenians and cultivating creative harmony between knowledge and values. The Ayb Learning Hub strives to become an environment linking the past with the future: where history is a spiritual presence and the future is a creative aspiration.
The Church in the Ayb campus (architect: Erik Ohanyan) consists of stone books, each of them signifying one of the Holy Translators. The construction symbolizes the individuals whose significant written legacy is the basis of Armenian national and spiritual identity. A theological library will be housed in the church. Thus, the church will cultivate soul and mind in a more integral way: along with prayers and blessings, it will also promote study and exploration of the spiritual writings and thoughts.
Building a church is a great honor, responsibility and mission. The Holy Translators Church in the Ayb campus is a crystallization of the shared faith of the advocates of education and a symbol of continuity of Armenian national and spiritual identity.
