520    In 2010, the world's wealthiest art institution, the J. 
       Paul Getty Museum, found itself confronted by a century-
       old genocide. The Armenian Church was suing for the return
       of eight pages from the Zeytun Gospels, a manuscript 
       illuminated by the greatest medieval Armenian artist, 
       Toros Roslin. Protected for centuries in a remote church, 
       the holy manuscript had followed the waves of displaced 
       people exterminated during the Armenian genocide. Passed 
       from hand to hand, caught in the confusion and brutality 
       of the First World War, it was cleaved in two. Decades 
       later, the manuscript found its way to the Republic of 
       Armenia, while its missing eight pages came to the Getty. 
       The Missing Pages is the biography of a manuscript that is
       at once art, sacred object, and cultural heritage. Its 
       tale mirrors the story of its scattered community as 
       Armenians have struggled to redefine themselves after 
       genocide and in the absence of a homeland. Heghnar 
       Zeitlian Watenpaugh follows in the manuscript's footsteps 
       through seven centuries, from medieval Armenia to the 
       killing fields of 1915 Anatolia, the refugee camps of 
       Aleppo, Ellis Island, and Soviet Armenia, and ultimately 
       to a Los Angeles courtroom. Reconstructing the path of the
       pages, Watenpaugh uncovers the rich tapestry of an 
       extraordinary artwork and the people touched by it. At 
       once a story of genocide and survival, of unimaginable 
       loss and resilience, The Missing Pages captures the human 
       costs of war and persuasively makes the case for a human 
       right to art.
