Entry date: 2007-01-27

Author(s): Thea Kobakhidze

პერიოდი, რომელიც ასურელ მოღვაწეთა ქართლში მობრძანებას ემთხვევა, საქართველოსათვის ძნელბედითი და კატაკლიზმებით სავსე იყო: "ამის ფარსმანის მეფობასა მოვიდეს სპარსნი, მოაოხრეს ქართლი და რანი, ხოლო ფარსმან მეფემან ქართველთამან, ითხოვა სპარსთ მეფისაგან, რათა არა მოაოხრნეს ეკლესიანი და იპყრას ქართლი სჯულსა ზედა ქრისტესსა, რამეთუ მას ჟამსა ბერძენნი უცალო იყვნენ ... ვერ შემძლებელ იყვნეს შეწევნად ქართველთა".

Historical Memory and Major Trends of its Study

Entry date: 2007-01-27

Author(s): Eka Kvachantiradze

The issue of historical memory is of great interest in the human sciences. It is researched by the anthropologists, psychologists, literature study professionals, philosophers. Historians joined these studies later, though their participation becomes more and more significant. If study of historical memory for western human scientists is regarded as actually ended (peak of research of these issues was in the 1970-1980s) and for Russian historiography it became the subject of interest since the 80s, for Georgian historical science this is relatively a new issue, requiring both, specific and generalized analysis.
