Centre of the World

“The Armenian plateau stands equidistant from the Euxene (Black Sea) and the Caspian sea on the north and between the Persian Gulf and the Mediterranean in the south. With the first Armenia is connected by the Acampis, with the second by the Araxes, with the third by Tigris and Euphrates the latter of which also serves as tan outlet toward the countries on the Mediterranean coast. Viewed with reference to the dispersion of the nations, Armenia is the true center of the world; and it is a significant fact that at the present day Ararat is the great boundary stone between the empires of Russia, Turkey, and Persia.”–Cyclopedia of Biblical, Theological, and Ecclesiastical Literature (1894).
