June 28-30, 2023
In 2023 one of the most important schools of Georgian literature and culture studies – the National Center of Manuscripts in Tbilisi will celebrate its 65th anniversary. In 2023 the Georgian monastery of Iviron on Mount Athos will turn 1040 years old.
For the National Center of Manuscripts, the coincidence of these two dates has a special and symbolic meaning. This is because the spiritual and intellectual values pursued at the Iviron Literary Centre are close to the scholarly principles that guided the founders of the National Center of Manuscripts. To celebrate these two dates, the National Center of Manuscripts is organizing an international scientific conference – “Georgian Manuscript Heritage” – to take place on June 28-30, 2023.
