Kings and Patriarchs of Georgia
Category: Academic Publications
The book deals with the complex relationship between the monarchs and the patriarchs in the Medieval times, the status of the head of the church, its evolvement and problems connected to being the spiritual leader of the nation. Both positions are analyzed synchronously, which makes it easier for the reader to access a specific historical moment, as well as connect particular kings to the patriarchs of their reign.
The publication describes the rituals of crowning monarchs and consecration of patriarchs. The book includes historical texts and the photocopies of the originals, as well as illustrations showing the kings and patriarchs.
