Տայք (Տաո). Նոր էջ միջնադարյան ճարտարապետության պատմության մեջ

Abstract : The article aims to present the main features of medieval architecture in the historic province called Tayk' in Armenian and Tao in Georgian, in the northeastern part of present-day Turkey. Situated on the borders of Armenia, Georgia and Byzantium, erected in the 10th century as a powerful principality under the aegis of an Iberian branch of the Bagratid dynasty, this province then had a mixed population, apparently mainly of Armenian origin, supplemented by Georgian immigrants and clergymen, who practised Georgian Orthodoxy and rites. In the 10th-11th centuries, this province developed a great and rich architecture which, based on the pre-Arab heritage, is characterized by remarkable originality and vigorous creativity. It developed a large number of new forms, some of which remained its own, but many of which enriched the arsenal of the two neighbouring schools of builders, the Armenian one and, even more so, the Georgian one. For all these reasons, the architectural production of Tayk' constitutes one of the most brilliant chapters in the history of medieval art in the whole Anatolia-Armenia-Georgia region.
