The primary value of the manuscript is that it establishes the chronology, sequence and descent of Georgian kings and erismtavaris. It is also important that the author identifies and determines numerous geographical place and toponyms. Volume 2 continues by describing the historical period from the second half of the sixth century to the 780 A.D. Georgia was ruled by the Christian Sassanid dynasty, Persia-Byzantine, and the Perozian and Bakurian Dynasties.

Reviews

“The research of Dr. Manana Sanadze is marked with courage. She never refrains from proving the groundlessness of opinions and stereotypes firmly established in Georgian and world historiography However, in such cases she usually refers to evidence preserved in historical sources. Therefore, her conclusions are always well corroborated and persuasive.”
