The Armenian Church celebrates the year 301 as the year of its establishment when Gregory converted King Trdat into Christianity. The king, in turn, made Christianity the state religion. Thus, Armenia became the first state in the world, where Christianity was officially proclaimed as a unique state religion. Events of the fifth century were critical to making of a distinctively Armenian Christian culture and identity. The foremost of these was the invention of the Armenian alphabet. Translations of scripture, commentaries, liturgy, theology, and histories were made. Christianity was strengthened in Armenia by the translation of the Bible into the Armenian language by the Armenian theologian, monk and scholar Saint Mesrop Mashtots in the fifth century.
