Written by Platon Joselian, native Georgian Christian and scholar, this work examines the major people and events that shaped and defined the Georgian faith.

The book closes with a brief description of the Georgian Church’s ecclesiastical structure. S.C. Malan’s editorial guidance significantly adds to the book‘s content and historical reliability.
