Description: Turnhout: Brepols, 2010. 28cm., pbk., 303pp. illus. Summary: Converted to Christianity at the beginning of the 4th century, ancient Georgia - often a religious and cultural border between Asia and Europe - possesses many remarkable monuments. This volume focuses on archaeological material that sheds light on the organization of liturgical space in Georgian churches: baptismal fonts, liturgical tables, and sanctuary enclosures. Their specific functions are studied, as well as the relationships in the nature, decoration, and function of the pieces, in order to contribute to our knowledge of religious usages at the edge of the Byzantine Empire. French text. (Bibliotheque de l'Antiquité Tardive, 15)
