This translation of the Life of St. Nino, from the standard Lives of Georgian Saints by Gobron Sabinin, makes readily available the basic hagiography of this important figure of Christianity in Georgia.

The editors provide a useful discussion of the critical material for the manuscript in the preface, noting important deviations from the standard text. Also included in this volume are chapters 8 through 11 of the Armenian Version of the text by Djouansher, as translated by F. C. Conybeare.

Her 1894 collection, Georgian Folk-Tales, Vol. I, was the first collection of such folktales available in English. Her work included the translation of important material for understanding the culture of pre-Soviet Georgia.
