Yuri Rost | 10 January 2013

This month marks two significant anniversaries in the life of Catholicos-Patriarch Ilia II of Georgia, one of the most highly-respected hierarchs in the Orthodox Church today: the 35th anniversary of his enthronement as Patriarch and his 80th birthday. In order to honor His Beatitude’s anniversaries, we offer the following collection of rare photos taken over the years by celebrated photographer and writer Yuri Rost, who has regularly visited Georgia over the past four decades. We thank Yuri Rost for sharing these remarkable photographs with Pravmir, and above all wish His Holiness, Catholicos-Patriarch Ilia II of Georgia, Many Years!
