Abstract

Brief Overview. The book of the Shiomgvime monastery typicon belongs to the beginning of XII century and it is the most important and valuable document. It is version of Saba Gantsmendili’s books of typicon  from Palestine (Black Mount) which was translated by ArsenIkaltoeli and was published and used as a guide book by David the Builder in new monastery named after Saint Maria.


This typicon by Shio Mgvime was spread all over Georgia but this book was not able to abolish already used one by Giorgi Mtatsmindeli (which was used until XIV-XV centuries) and the ruins of this book still remains in the book we discuss.
