Georgian Manuscript is an important part of the world’s cultural heritage. It represents the major phases of the evolution of the Georgian culture – development of the Georgian alphabet, written language, and philosophical, literary, legal and scientific thought, cultural contacts of the Georgian people with the outside world…
Exceptional monuments of the Georgian history and culture – handwritten books, historical documents, archives of the writers, statesmen and scholars, old printed editions are preserved in the Fonds of the National Centre of Manuscripts. Another part of the Centre’s treasury – ancient documents, manuscripts and old printed books in Greek, Arabic, Persian, Turkish, Hebrew, Armenian, Slavic, Latin and other languages – is also of great interest for the academic circles.
The Fonds of the National Centre of Manuscripts attract Georgian and foreign scholars with their variety and antiquity. These Fonds gave birth to many interesting ideas, new interpretations, important discoveries. Together with the study and popularization of the handwritten heritage, the National Centre has another priority – protection of this treasury: preservation, conservation and restoration, cataloguing and description, digitalization, creation of the information database of the manuscripts.
