Religion in Armenia
Armenia was the first nation in the world to adopt Christianity as its official state religion, in the year 301 CE.
Although it was part of the communist USSR which encouraged state atheism for decades, Armenia remains a Christian-majority country. The majority of its 3 million people, 93% belong to its national church, the Armenian Apostolic Church. The Armenian Apostolic Church is a conservative Orthodox Church, comparable to the Syriac Orthodox Church and the Coptic Orthodox Church.
