ABSTRACT
Ottoman Empire recognized Armenians who areconnected to Gregorian denomination as an independentcommunity like Orthodox and Jews and gave them manyrights and privileges for religion and culture. But becauseof the affect of Catholic missioners who showed activity inOttoman Empire the unity of denomination amongArmenians had been disturbed since XVI century and Ottoman Empire recognized Catholic Armenians as acommunity in 1830. From the beginning of XIX centuryProtestant missioners tried to affect Armenians. As aresult of this effort of Protestant missioners mostArmenians embraced Protestantism and in 1850Protestant Armenian Community disengaged fromArmenian Church (patriarchate). Thus Armenians’dimidiation of denomination for the second time receivednegative reaction from both Armenian Church(patriarchate) and Gregorian Armenians Community.Disagreement between these two denominations turnedinto conflicts and continued till XIX century.
