Lives of the Georgian Saints

By Archpriest Zakaria Machitadze
Translated from the Georgian by David and Lauren Elizabeth Ninoshvili
Edited by Lado Mirianashvili and the St. Herman of Alaska Brotherhood

“Georgia is a small nation; today less than five million people live within her borders. Yet this land has produced thousands of saints—kings and queens, warriors and ascetics—whose lives shine forth with the noblest qualities of the Georgian people. Their stories are intertwined with the history of Georgia, a story of martyrdom and resurrection.”
