Bagrati cathedral in Kutaisi (Géorgie/Georgia)
The Cathedral of the Dormition, or the Kutaisi Cathedral, more commonly known as Bagrati Cathedral, is the 11th-century cathedral church in the city of Kutaisi, the region of Imereti, Georgia. The cathedral, now in ruins, has gone down as a masterpiece in the history of medieval Georgian architecture.
A distinct landmark in the scenery of central Kutaisi, the cathedral rests upon the top of Uk'imerioni Hill. It was built in the early years of the 11th century, during the reign of King Bagrat III due to which it was called Bagrati Cathedral, i.e., Bagrat's cathedral. An inscription on the north wall reveals that the floor was laid in chronicon 223, i.e., 1003. In 1692, it was devastated in an explosion by the Ottoman troops, which had invaded the Kingdom of Imereti. The incident caused the cupola and ceiling to collapse leaving the cathedral in its present state.
The conservation and restoration works, as well as archaeological studies, which began in 1952, are still underway. In 1994, the Bagrati Cathedral, together with the Gelati Monastery, was included in the UNESCO World Heritage Site list as a single entity. In 2001, the cathedral was restored to the Georgian Orthodox Church. It is now of limited use for worship services, but attracts many pilgrims and tourists. It is also frequently used as a symbol of the whole city of Kutaisi, being one of its main tourist attractions.
La cathédrale de Bagrati ( Bagratis tadzari) est une cathédrale construite au XIe siècle dans la ville de Kutaisi (région d'Iméréthie), en Géorgie. Aujourd'hui en ruines, elle est un chef-d'oeuvre de l'architecture médiévale géorgienne.
Située sur la colline Uk'imerioni, elle est construite au début du XIe siècle pendant le règne du roi Bagrat III, d'où son nom, signifiant « la cathédrale de Bagrat ». Une inscription sur le mur septentrional révèle que le plancher fut installé en « chronicon 223 », donc 1003 au calendrier julien.
Elle est dévastée par des bombes des troupes ottomanes en 1692 ; ceux-ci étaient en train d'envahir le royaume d'Iméréthie. Cet incident cause l'effondrement de la coupole et du toit, laissant ainsi la cathédrale en l'état dont on la voit aujourd'hui.
Les travaux de conservation et de restauration ainsi que des études archéologiques sont en cours depuis 1952.
Elle est ajoutée à la liste du patrimoine mondial de l'UNESCO depuis 1994, ex-aequo avec le monastère de Ghélati, et en 2001 elle est rendue à l'Église orthodoxe apostolique de Géorgie. Les cérémonies religieuses y sont célébrées de manière limitée, mais elle attire beaucoup de pèlerins et de touristes et est souvent utilisée comme symbole de la ville de Kutaisi.
