Without this support, I would not be able to devote the time I need to produce all that you will see moving forward. Since I am now working by the hour and my time is more limited, I need to figure things out how to best use my time for your benefit, and will then give a progress report some time in the spring. Till then, I encourage all those who do not yet financially support this ministry - yet find some benefit from it - to likewise do so in order that it may continue to be helpful to you and countless others.

Georgian Church Declares 2013 'the Year of Queen Tamar'


February 4, 2013

Patriarch Ilia II of All Georgia announced during his sermon on Sunday that the Georgian Orthodox Church has declared 2013 the year of Queen Tamar, reports Trend.az.

The Patriarch said that 2013 is, as most historians believe, the 800th anniversary of the Georgian queen's repose. Although other theories exist regarding the exact year, the Georgian Church has decided to set the celebration for this year.

Queen Tamar is one of the most revered saints of Georgia. Her reign was the most successful period in that country's history. Unfortunately her grave has not yet been discovered.
