The National Center of Manuscripts warmly invites scholars from different fields of research to submit proposals for the International Conference “Tao-Klarjeti”. This is the third conference on the issue.
Rich history and cultural significance of Tao-Klarjeti, which had established herself among the most prominent monastic centers of Eastern Christendom, has generated scholarly interest to the historical province.
In early middle ages Tao-Klarjeti was the flourishing principality and a significant center of the Georgian monastic movement. A big number of ruins of fortresses, churches and monasteries scattered throughout the area corroborate the above. Local religious centers, which drew intellectual resources from entire Georgia, had close cultural contacts with the most significant monastic centers of the Byzantine realm.
Strategic location of Tao-Klarjeti made it a target of neighbouring empires, contributing to political fate of the province and to creation of a multicultural environment.
