Bazmavep (Pazmaveb in Western Armenian; Armenian: Բազմավէպ, "Polyhistory") is an academic journal covering Armenian studies. It is published by the Mechitarist monastery in San Lazzaro degli Armeni, Venice, Italy. According to Robert H. Hewsen, it is the first Armenian scholarly journal.[3] It is the longest-running Armenian publication still being published.

Bazmavep was established by Gabriel Aivazovsky and Ghevond Alishan in May 1843,[4] with the initial intention of publishing for three years.[5] Previous editors-in-chief have been Gabriel Aivazovsky (1843–48) and Ghevont Alishan (1849-51). The current editor is Sahak Chemchemean.
