The church was built in honor of the nun Hripsime (meaning of royal birth), who along with the abbess Gayane and 35 other Christian nuns from Rome were killed on orders of King Trdat III before his conversion to Christianity by St. Gregory the Illuminator.
Upon the kingâ€™s conversion, Christianity was proclaimed as Armeniaâ€™s state religion in 301 AD making Armenia the first Christian nation. As a result of their martyrdom, the Roman nuns Hripsime and Gayane were elevated to sainthood by the Armenian Church.
