A survey of the architecture and history of the Tao-Klarjeti region. This book, comprising the proceedings of a 2014 symposium at Koc University' s Vehbi Koc Ankara Studies Research Center, fills an important gap in the research surrounding the historical principality of Tao-Klarjeti. This political entity founded by the Georgian Bagrationis dynasty in the early ninth century covers the modern-day provinces of Artvin, Erzurum (partially), Ardahan in Turkey, and the provinces of Samtskhe-Javakheti and Ajara in Georgia. This volume explores the religious and secular buildings, decor programs, facade articulations, stone reliefs of monastic and Cathedral churches, mason builders, and donors of Tao-Klarjeti' s architecture. A particular focus is placed on recent archaeological discoveries in Savsat Castle and the heritage of manuscripts produced in scriptoriums and literary centers of the region.
Irene Giviashvili is an affiliated researcher at the G. Chubinashvili National Research Centre for Georgian Art History and Heritage Preservation. Feyza Akder is a postdoctoral researcher at Vehbi Koc Ankara Studies Research Center at Koc University in Istanbul.
