THE ARMENIAN REBELLION OF THE 1720S AND THE THREAT OF GENOCIDAL REPRISAL
In the text Persia and Iran are used interchangeably. Although I follow the source whenever it has Persia, I myself prefer to use Iran. Also, I have translated as "Iran" the Qizilbashi yerkir ("country of the Qizilbashis") frequently used in the Armenian sources.
I have preferred the Armenian usage of Yerevan rather than the 16-19th century European Erivan (while, of course, leaving this usage in the source as it is).
In the text all emphases are mine. All dates are in the Old Style, which, in the 1720s, was ahead of the New Style by 11 days.
In the quoted excerpts, brackets are used to indicate information derived from the context of a given source, while parentheses indicate editorial matter that provide explanations or supplementary material.
