N.Abakelia:Religious Symbols of Power and Identity in Georgian Culture
People, as is well known, are consciously related with one another in territorial identities, which on their turn are considered to constitute potent realities. The paper aims to show how territorially, politically and culturally defined Georgia having a great religious power and its symbols (manifest in Christian churches, rituals and narratives) operated within different settings and domains.
 
Here the level of abstraction implies sacred geography (bonds to the territory, sense of belonging, etc).
 
The goal of the paper is to show how passive in its essence territory and structured space become meaningful by means of beliefs, religious festivals and rituals which create and preserve collective identities.
 
The presentation will reveal how the web of powerful symbols constituting the circulation system operates within the frame of cultural reality.
