The Georgian Orthodox Scholarship Fund

Hieromartyr Grigol Peradze of Georgia (1889-1942) was a profoundly gifted theologian, historian, and linguist who used his vast knowledge for the sake of others. He preached and published homilies, worked tirelessly to recover and preserve treasures of Georgian Orthodox history and culture, and imitated the Lord he so fervently pursued in his studies as he sacrificed his own life to save others in the Nazi concentration camp at Auschwitz.

In this letter written to a charitable organization, Hieromartyr Grigol Peradze asks for financial support for his studies abroad in Germany, where the Georgian Church sent him in 1922 to study theology.In this letter written to a charitable organization, Hieromartyr Grigol Peradze asks for financial support for his studies abroad in Germany, where the Georgian Church sent him in 1922 to study theology.In honor of this great martyr, St. Vladimir’s Seminary has established the St. Grigol Peradze Scholarship Fund to support seminarians from the Orthodox Church of Georgia, who desire to serve Christ as he did.
