The Armenian Church is a Monophysite communion, and therefore is most closely related to Syrian, Coptic and Ethiopian branches of Christianity.

 (PATRIARCHS) Tall Armenian Tale: The Other Side of the Falsified Genocide
The Patriarch Nerses Varjabedian submitted a report to the Istanbul Conference (12 December 1876-20 January 1877), which was convened in Istanbul to bring a solution to Bulgarian question, depicting so-called acts of coercion to which the Armenian subjects of the Ottoman Empire were submitted, which report was entirely prepared by the former patriarch.
The Patriarchate had collected duties from the Armenians under various names (under the colour such as aid to the Armenians who suffered from dearth, reimbursement of the debts payable for the Holy Jerusalem) and initiated large scale campaigns in Europe through press media in favor of the Armenians and against the Turks.
It is understood that the Patriarch spoke without reflection, thinking that autonomy was going to be obtained anyway, but that he did not repeat this figure, and even gave a figure under 2,000,000, when he saw that autonomy was not going to materialize, and he thought of the subject of taxes.

 (CENSUS) Tall Armenian Tale: The Other Side of the Falsified Genocide
The Istanbul Armenian Patriarch gave (to the British, in 1921) the figure of Armenians still remaining inside Ottoman borders, before the Sevres Agreement, as 625,000* (as opposed to Nubar's 280,000; to be exact, the Patriarch's figure was 624,900, and there were an additional 20,000 estimated hidden Armenians afraid to surface.
When it is taken into account the figure for the Armenians who have not been subject to deportation, immigrated prior to and during the war, and reached their destination at the end of the deportation process, the same conclusion is drawn about the loss.
To put the Armenian loss into perspective, it should be noted that the Muslims of the war zone suffered equally horrific loss: The Muslim population of the Van province decreased by 62%, that of Bitlis by 42%, that of Erzurum by 31%.
