The present volume completes the reproduction of archival documents begun in LA QUESTIONE ARMENA, Vol. I 1894-1896, Documenti dell'Archivio Segreto Vaticano (ASV). It collects the documents kept in the archives of the Congregation for the Oriental Churches (COC). If the ASV documents of volume I have primarily a political connotation, the COC documents give a more lively description of the massacres perpetrated in various places, often coming from eyewitnesses and containing at times very detailed accounts of victims, destruction and losses. Other documents refer to the conversion movement to the Catholic Church or show to what extent the aid sent by the Holy See tried to alleviate the misery of survivors. To safeguard historical truth, the volume reproduces chronologically unpublished documents which are now edited for the first time. A list of short biographies of the main protagonists, an index of persons and places, an index of the documents reproduced and a lexicon of terminology have been added.
