The Getty remains committed to an appropriate resolution of a lawsuit filed by the Western Prelacy of the Armenian Apostolic Church concerning the Canon Tables of the 13th century Zeyt’un Gospels by T’oros Roslin.  The Getty acquired the manuscripts in 1994, and is confident the acquisition was proper and meets the highest standards for a museum acquisition.
