More crap to do today, way, way more, and thus more procrastination, searching Caucasus strongholds, in this case Svetitskhoveli Cathedral in Mtskheta, Georgia, reputed to be the burial place of the mantle of Christ. The archbishop who serves as the Catholicos-Patriarch of All Georgia, currently Ilia II, is situated there.
