Massis (in Armenian Մասիս) is a Lebanese-Armenian publication published by the Armenian Catholic Patriarchate in Lebanon.[1]

History and profile[edit]

Massis was established in 1947 by Cardinal Krikor Aghajanian in Beirut. A long-serving editor of the publication was Father Antranik Granian. It stopped publication temporarily in the 1990s and restarted in 2005, with Sarkis Najarian as editor in chief.

Massis is a religious, political, social and cultural periodical published with varying frequencies (weekly, bi-weekly, monthly) and at times as a tabloid newspaper and as a magazine. Presently it is published on a monthly basis (12 issues per year), with pages varying between 48 and 60 magazine-size pages.
