The tiny state of Georgia is one of the world's most culturally mature countries, with a history of 6000 years. Georgian history has been profoundly affected by the country's espousal of Christianity in the 4th century AD. During its "golden age" from the 11th to 13th centuries it was a world cvommercial and cultural centre and a key point on the Christian frontier in the Crusades. After centuries of Mongol and Turkish subjection and absorption into the Russian/Soviet empire, Georgia is today once again an independent country. The introductory text of this book traces Georgia's long cultural history from archaeological beginnings to the present. Twenty-three essays by scholars from all over the world give a vivid portrayal of Georgia's heritage in history, literature and manuscript production, archaeology and art throughout prehistoric, classical and Christian periods up to the early modern era. Over 150 objects are presented and their range is vast: Neolithic ceramics, intricately worked Bronze and Iron Age gold and silver, Greek and Roman jewellery, richly illuminated manuscripts, medieval paintings, cloisonne enamel and gold repousse work, and embroidery are all illustrated.
