Memory of the World
Georgia - Ancha Gospel
The Ancha Gospel is a unique manuscript which is of special historic and cultural importance not only for Georgia but for the Christian world as a whole. Dated by 11th-12th centuries, the gospel was created at a time when Georgian chasing and art reched its peak. During that period different spheres of art were developed, educational centers were opened where mainly eclectic literature was rewritten and translated from different languages into Georgian. Unfortunately only very few manuscripts are survived from these days.
