Celebrating Other Spirituality 365 Days a Year – Mesrop Ma tots

February 19 and 20

Mesrop Ma tots

This day celebrates the birth of Mesrop Ma tots, a missionary to the remoter parts of his native Armenia who, in order to provide his countrymen with books in their own language, invented a 36-letter alphabet (still used today with the addition of a few extra letters). He is also credited with inventing the 38-letter Georgian alphabet.
