The Armenian kir/zkir, the Danish skrive, Latin scribere and the English script/scribe are the same word. In Sanskrit, it means “refined, consecrated, sanctified. The liturgical language refers to “the refined or classical language” of Indian Hinduism and used as ceremonial language. The word is connected to the Armenian “kertel” (to scratch) because in ancient times Sumerians wrote by scratching clay tablets. According to Mesrob Jacob Seth, historian of Armenians in India, pre-Christian Armenian alphabets were smuggled to India for safekeeping.
