Armenian Weekly -- A lawsuit filed against the J. Paul Getty Trust and the Getty Museum on behalf of the Western Prelacy on June 1, 2010, demanded the return of the pages of illuminated manuscripts created by Toros Roslin in 1256.

Attorneys for the Prelacy contended that the pages of the Zeytun Gospel were “lost or stolen during the Armenian Genocide.” The suit claimed that the pages of the “Canon tables” were “wrongfully in the possession, custody, and control” of the J. Paul Getty Trust, in the Getty Museum.

As a result of the settlement, the museum will keep the pages and the church will get the recognition that it has always been the rightful owner of the pages.
