Archbishop Arsen Berberian repatriated to Armeniain in 1947. Despite the fact that he was not from a clergyman's family, he grew up in a spiritual environment. He attended Church every Sunday and sang in the choir. In 1955, he entered the Holy Echmiadzin Theological Seminary. After graduating from the seminary, he studied for two years at the Theorlogical Center in Moscow. After returning home in 1962 and being ordained as a priest, he was appointed the private secretary to the head of the Armenian Church. In 1967, Arsen studied at BOSSEI in Geneva; in 1968-1973 at KINGS COLLEGE, LONDON UNIVERSITY, simultaneously studying at the Royal Academy of Music. After graduating from London University with a PhD, he was invited to the Holy See and appointed Chancellor and Director of Inter-Church Relations at the Department of the Armenian Church. Following the appointment, he was involved in international church relations, conferences, congresses, ecumenical movements and contacts with the leaders of different churches. Arsen served as the Primate of the Ararat Diocese (1981-1984) and Gugark Diocese (1990-1996). After that stint of service, he retired and now resides in the U. S. where he's writing his personal memories of history. He is committed to helping others who desire to become familiar with the Christian culture. His hobbies are literary works, art, painting and, especially, Armenian church music.
