Georgia, Tbilisi, Feb.4 /. Trend N.Kirtskhalia /

Georgian Orthodox Church has declared 2013 the year of Queen Tamar. Patriarch of All Georgia Ilia II made this statement during a Sunday sermon.

He said 2013 is the anniversary year, as scientists believe that this year marks the 800th anniversary of Georgian queen’s death.

“There are other assumptions, but most scientists think that way, so we decided to declare 2013 as the year of Queen Tamar,” Patriarch said.

It should be noted that Queen Tamar’s ruling was the most successful period in the history of Georgia. Meanwhile, grave of the Queen has not been found until now.

Since you are here…

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible -,, and Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 euros a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 euros a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
