Culturologic aspects of conversion of Kartly (On the base of the correlation of the oldest Byzantine and Georgian sources)

Entry date: 2007-01-27

Author(s): Alexandra Gegechkori

Iberia-Kartli shortly after its conversion into Christianity (337) established political and cultural relations with Byzantine – the nucleus of eastern Christian civilization. The data available about conversion of Kartli in the oldest Greek sources are fragmental and tendentious, since they deal with the church founded beyond the limits of the empire at the participation of Greek clergymen. This theme is considered in more details in Georgian sources, historical chronicles and ecclesiastical records.

Entry date: 2007-01-27

Author(s): Khatuna Todadze

XIX საუკუნის 70-იან წლებში აღმოსავლეთი კვლავ მსოფლიო ყურადღების ცენტრში მოექცა. ინგლისი ისევ ეწინააღმდეგებოდა რუსეთის მიერ ბოსფორისა და დარდანელის სრუტეების ხელში ჩაგდების ცდებს. ავსტრია-უნგრეთს რუსეთის ბალკანეთზე გაბატონება აშინებდა. გერმანია კი აღმოსავლეთის საკითხის გამწვავებას უწყობდა ხელს, ცენტრალურ ევროპაში თავისუფლად რომ ემოქმედა. 1875 წელს ბოსნიასა და ჰერცოგოვინაში ანტითურქულმა აჯანყებამ იფეთქა. მალე მან სლავი ხალხების ეროვნულ განმათავისუფლებელი ომის ხასიათი მიიღო. ეს რუსეთის წისქვილზე ასხავდა წყალს. რუსეთმაც არ დააყოვნა და 1877 წლის 24 აპრილს თურქეთს ომი გამოუცხადა.
