Azarya’s examination of the delicate symbiosis between the lay and monastic communities is sensitive and sociologically acute. The contrasts of the Armenian quarter shed light on the differences between types of collectives, and illustrate the ways in which people stubbornly accomplish the mingling of what seem incompatible rules for living.
