Abstract
According to the protocol of the Council of Professors of the Georgian University in Tiflis (March 15, 1918) signed by P. Melikishvili and Iv. Javakhishvili, the authors relaying on the scientific achievements of the famous Russian art historian Nikodim Kondakov in the study of art history and history of Georgian art in particular, proposed to elect Kondakov as an honorary member of the Georgian University. N. Kondakov was elected unanimously and a decision was made to send the diploma as soon as possible with the indication of this fact to the Russian scholar. However, despite N. Kondakov’s noted merits regarding Georgian art deserves special attention his election as the first honorary member of the newly founded Georgian University. It is interesting not only in the political context of the first Democratic Republic of Georgia (1918-1921), but also in the light of the reference letter of Iv. Javakhishvili issued in support of an invitation of a young Georgian scholar Giorgi Chubinashvili to the position of professor of art history at the university. In his letter (December. 1918) Javakhishvili especially emphasized Chubinashvili’s European education and therefore, his qualification for study Georgian art. It is well known that within the framework of the preparatory process to the establishment of the first national university, Iv. Javakhishvili paid special attention to attracting young Georgians who studied in different European universities to this process. Due to this fact, it is of special interest to analyze what led to the election of Russian scholar Kondakov to the first honorary member of the university. The paper will analyze the reasons and international context that led the Council of Professors to such a decision.
