Paper presented Feb. 22, 2008 during the Annual Sacred Leaves Graduate Symposium, held at the University of South Florida and organized by the Special Collections Dept. of the USF Tampa Library.
From the 5th to the 11th century, Georgian literature bore an exclusively ecclesiastical and religious character, determined by the political and cultural conditions peculiar to the Georgian tribes of the time. The adoption of Christianity (ca. 337) had a stimulating influence on the life of the Georgian people. Saints' lives (vitae) were much translated in medieval Georgia. Almost simultaneously with translations, there emerged and speedily developed an original Georgian ecclesiastical literature, called into being by the ideological requirements and urgent needs of the local Christian Church. The presentation deals with the two most important Georgian hagiographical texts of the 11th century: "Life of Saints John and Efthumios, founders of Iveron monastery on Mount Athos" by George the Athonite and "Life of George the Athonite" by George Mtsire.
