Chapter Summary

The anonymous author of The Life of David was a contemporary of King David IV of Georgia and his faithful follower, known to him personally and therefore able to give a vivid account of his life. This chapter presents a short description of the book Cxovreba mepet mepisa Davitisi, Cxovreba Davit IV Agmasheneblisa, 'Life of David, King of kings'on Christian-Muslim relations. The Life of David provides significant evidence for the period of Seljuk domination in Georgia and the whole of Transcaucasia in the late 11th and early 12th century. The work describes the ruin of the country and the disasters that befell the Georgian people. The work describes how King David adopted a policy of ethnic and religious tolerance in his kingdom, which was to become a model for later rulers.
