Robert P. Blake, Georgian Secular Literature: Epic, Romance, and Lyric (1100-1800)


Georgian secular literature is almost as untrodden a field as Georgian theological production during the Middle Ages. While rather more secular texts have been published, only one of these has come out in a critical edition 1 and a number of the most important documents have been handled in a manner that is lamentably inadequate. What has been written on the subject is widely scattered, veiled in recondite tongues, and most of the studies have been distorted by being seen through nationalist spectacles 크롬브라우저 다운로드.

The importance of the poem in Georgian literature is indisputable. I t is probably the first example of a poetical treatment of a lively historical Georgian theme-no small achievement of T’eimuraz’s poetic talent 더 하우스 다운로드.

Antony Eastmond – Royal Imagery in Medieval Georgia

Medieval Georgia, in the Caucasus, produced a wealth of monuments to its rulers, of which little is known outside the former Soviet Union 다운로드. This book is the first of its kind to examine the development of royal imagery in Georgia between the ninth and thirteenth centuries. Positioned between the Christian and Islamic worlds, Georgia provides an excellent case study for the investigation of issues regarding the relationship between art and power and the transmission of ideas between East and West 다운로드. Byzantine, Persian, Armenian, Turkic, and local traditions are shown to have influenced the image of power promoted by the Georgian rulers, and Eastmond bases his study on fine examples ranging from high-relief stone carvings to sophisticated wall-painting cycles 다운로드.

Initially, the book traces the production and interpretation of royal imagery over five centuries, from the revival of the Georgian monarchy in the ninth century to its culmination in the reign of Queen Tamar (1184–1213) on the eve of the Mongolian invasions 영화 범블비 다운로드. Eastmond highlights the ways in which the details and settings of each image of a ruler were very carefully designed to impress different audiences, allowing for the coexistence of contradictory portrayals 다운로드.

Specifically, the book concentrates on the five surviving images of Queen Tamar. These portraits provide untapped evidence of the ways in which artistic traditions were transformed by the need to legitimize the accession of a woman to power 일시정지 다운로드. Eastmond also challenges the typically held view that the role of patronage in the functioning and development of royal imagery was centrally controlled 다운로드. He proposes instead that it was manipulated by members of the court to promote both local and royal interests.

Royal Imagery in Medieval Georgia introduces a rarely seen body of important works and provides a model of interpretation that can be applied to the study of royal art elsewhere in the Byzantine and Western medieval worlds 마린키우기. It is the first detailed English-language study of this material.

Stephen Rapp – The Sasanian World Through Georgian Eyes: Caucasia and the Iranian Commonwealth in Late Antique Georgian Literature

Georgian literary sources for Late Antiquity are commonly held to be later productions devoid of historical value 다운로드. As a result, scholarship outside the Republic of Georgia has privileged Graeco-Roman and even Armenian narratives. However, when investigated within the dual contexts of a regional literary canon and the active participation of Caucasia’s diverse peoples in the Iranian Commonwealth, early Georgian texts emerge as a rich repository of late antique attitudes and outlooks 브이앱 채널플러스. Georgian hagiographical and historiographical compositions open a unique window onto a northern part of the Sasanian world that, while sharing striking affinities with the Iranian heartland, was home to vibrant, cosmopolitan cultures that developed along their own trajectories 피카사 웹앨범 다운로드.

In these sources, precise and accurate information about the core of the Sasanian Empire-and before it, Parthia and Achaemenid Persia-is sparse; yet the thorough structuring of wider Caucasian society along Iranian and especially hybrid Iranic lines is altogether evident 모바일 osu. Scrutiny of these texts reveals, inter alia, that the Old Georgian language is saturated with words drawn from Parthian and Middle Persian, a trait shared with Classical Armenian; that Caucasian society, like its Iranian counterpart, was dominated by powerful aristocratic houses, many of whose origins can be traced to Iran itself; and that the conception of kingship in the eastern Georgian realm of K’art’li (Iberia), even centuries after the royal family’s Christianisation in the 320s and 330s, was closely aligned with Arsacid and especially Sasanian models 웹 하드 일괄 다운로드.

There is also a literary dimension to the Irano-Caucasian nexus, aspects of which this volume exposes for the first time 다운로드. The oldest surviving specimens of Georgian historiography exhibit intriguing parallels to the lost Sasanian Xwaday-namag, The Book of Kings, one of the precursors to Ferdowsi’s Shahnama 다운로드. As tangible products of the dense cross-cultural web drawing the region together, early Georgian narratives sharpen our understanding of the diversity of the Iranian Commonwealth and demonstrate the persistence of Iranian and Iranic modes well into the medieval epoch 영화 창궐 다운로드.

Stephen Rapp – Studies in Medieval Georgian Historiography: Early Texts and Eurasian Contexts

Original literature first appeared among the indigenous population of Caucasia in the fifth century AD as a consequence of its Christianization 다운로드. Though a number of Armenian histories were composed at this time, several centuries elapsed before the Georgians created their own. But how many centuries 파워포인트 2010 다운로드? Through a meticulous investigation of internal textual criteria, Studies in Medieval Georgian Historiography challenges the traditional eleventh-century dating of the oldest Georgian narrative histories and probes their interrelationships 첨부파일 한번에 다운로드. Illuminating Caucasia’s status as a cultural crossroads, it reveals the myriad Eurasian influences – written and oral, Christian and non-Christian – on these “pre-Bagratid” histories produced between the seventh and the ninth century 콩순이 다운로드. Eastern Georgia’s place in the Eurasian world and its long-standing connection to the Iranian Commonwealth are specially highlighted. This volume also examines several related historical and historiographical problems of the early Bagratid period and supplies critical translations of six early Georgian histories previously unavailable in English 구글 프레임.
