The oldest dated extant manuscript of the Georgian version of the Gospels, it was created at Shatberdi Monastery in the southwestern Georgian princedom of Klarjeti (located now in northeastern Turkey) in AD 897, and later removed thence to be preserved in the remote village of Adysh (Adishi) in highland Svaneti. The first five folios (30 x 25 cm) of the manuscript are illuminated (Illumination (manuscript)). Life Feridun Zaimoğlu, born in Bolu Turkey, came in 1965 with his parents to Germany.

In 2003 he became ''Island poet'' on the island of Sylt, and in 2004 he was a visiting fellow at the Freie Universität Berlin (Free University of Berlin). One of the great mysteries of Homeric scholarship, too, has been how Homer — whoever he was, or whoever "they" were — living in the Aegean (Aegean Sea) in what now is western Turkey, where he they are said to have lived, might have acquired such detailed knowledge of "Ithaca" Paliki as appears in his ''Odyssey''. The suggestion made in the study ''Odysseus Unbound'', Chapter 26 "Exodus", p. 342ff, particularly Figure 26.1 at p. 343. is that folk-tales of the "Ithacans" containing detailed references to the landscape were carried by them, during their Greek Dark Ages migrations during the time-of-troubles which followed the Mycenean (Mycenaean Greece) Trojan war period, to the Greek mainland and from there to western Anatolia. At that final resting place for the migration of the Ionians, then, roving bards of the type described by Milman Parry picked up the "Ithacan" tales, perhaps, and wove them together into the ''Odyssey'': for the entertainment and edification of audiences who knew Paliki well, and initially were very homesick, and longed for it. '''Bahçeşehir University''' is a private (Private school) educational institution in Turkey, located at the European side of Istanbul.

massive efforts

. Virtually serious scholars not getting funding from the Turkish government - including a number of Turkish scholars agree it was genocide. It is a truth vs. the Turkish Government battle, and the massive efforts of Turkey to prevent discussion and censor the suject in Turkey that have led to this. Anyway - I feel like there is no way I can convince Ato with facts when trying to find proper wording, so let me know what is needed from me on mediation. --RaffiKojian (User:RaffiKojian) 03:40, 18 Oct

'''Turkey''' (

Turkey has been inhabited since the paleolithic age (paleolithic),

Starting from the late 13th century, the Ottomans united Anatolia and created an empire encompassing much of Southeastern Europe (Southeast Europe), Western Asia and North Africa, becoming a major power in Eurasia and Africa during the early modern period. The empire reached the peak of its power between the 15th and 17th centuries, especially during the reign of Suleiman the Magnificent (r. 1520–1566). After the second Ottoman siege of Vienna (Battle of Vienna) in 1683 and the end of the Great Turkish War in 1699, the Ottoman Empire entered a long period of decline (Decline of the Ottoman Empire). The Tanzimat reforms of the 19th century, which aimed to modernize the Ottoman state, proved to be inadequate in most fields, and failed to stop the dissolution of the empire (Dissolution of the Ottoman Empire).

Turkey is a democratic (democracy), secular (secular state), unitary (unitary state), constitutional republic (Republic) with a diverse cultural heritage (Multiculturalism).
