RELIGION

The majority of Armenians are adherents of Christianity, 93% of who belong to the Armenian Apostolic Church. Minority Christian denominations in Armenia include Russian Orthodox, Armenian and Latin rite Catholics, Protestants, Greek Orthodox and Jewish. There is a small community of Muslims. In 2001 Armenia celebrated the 1700th anniversary of adoption of Christianity as a state religion. Freedom of conscience is guaranteed by the constitution and, in general, Armenians are very tolerant of people of other faiths.
