The Georgian Monastery in Istanbul
The book is dedicated to the history of one of the most important Georgian historical monuments – the Georgian monastery in Istanbul. The research focuses on Simon Zazadze, a philanthropist and public figure, a tireless protector of the monument. In general, the role of the Zazadze family living in Istanbul is highlighted because they worked hard to safeguard and study the cultural legacy of the monastery, including its rich library and archive. The task would have been impossible if not for the assistance from the Turkish people and the Turkish authorities, which is highly appreciated.
