Harootiun Vehabedian, Armenian Patriarch of Jerusalem, 1900 (Library of Congress).

In 638, the Armenian Apostolic Church began appointing its own bishop in Jerusalem, generally known as the Armenian Patriarch of Jerusalem. The office has continued, with some interruptions, down to this day.

The bishop at the Armenian Patriarchate of Jerusalem is given the title of Patriarch in deference to Jerusalem's holy status within Christianity and has an independent jurisdiction from the Catholicos of Armenia and of All Armenians. The Patriarch's title is "His Beatitude".
