Seikyo Shimbun “Voyage on the Memory of the World” about Georgia

Newspaper Seikyo Shimbun issued an article on May 4, 2017 about “The Oldest Manuscripts Preserved at the National Archives of Georgia” written by Ms. Mami Furuta from The Sekaiisan Research Institute.

Eight items of Georgian secular and ecclesiastic literature, dating from the 4-15 Centuries AD, were accepted into the UNESCO Memory of the World Register earlier this month. The documents include a 9th Century AD version of the Christian gospel completed in the oldest Georgian script Asomtavruli. The evolution of Georgia’s written language has produced three alphabets – Mrgvlovani, Nuskhuri and Mkhedruli – which all remain in use today. Eight Georgian manuscripts and 39 other collections and documents from around the world would be added to the UNESCO Memory of the World Register.

The UNESCO inscribed "Living culture of three writing systems of the Georgian alphabet" on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2016.
