Rind (Armenian: Ռինդ, also Romanized as Rrind) is a town in the Vayots Dzor Province of Armenia, most notable for being the site of a mass hysteria in the nineteenth century.

Mass Hysteria[edit]

In the early 1800s, virtually the entire population of Rind was wiped out in a mass hysteria event that remains poorly understood. It remains a widely studied event in psychology, due to the lack of knowledge surrounding the event.
