The index of articles published on the pages of the journal “Employee of the Transcaucasian Mission” — a publication of the Diocesan Church Brotherhood of the Holy Right-Believing Prince Alexander Nevsky in the city of Sukhum, contains a page-by-page list of publications published in 93 issues, from January 1, 1912 to August 1916. The value of the presented material lies in its reference and bibliographic nature. The index gives an idea of a wide range of problems and topics of publications, the relevance of the tasks of the Sukhumi diocese, and the proposed ways to solve them. Among the frequently discussed issues are the religious and moral needs of the population of the Sukhum diocese, opposition to the influence of Mohammedanism and the spread of sects, the organization of pastoral and parochial schools. The circle of authors of the “Cooperate ...” were clergymen, historians, ethnographers, writers who stood at the origins of the Abkhaz enlightenment: Bishop Andrei (Ukhtomsky) of Sukhumi, the founder of the Abkhaz written literature D.I. Gulia, local historian and teacher K.D. Machavariani, local historian-ethnographer A.I. Chukbar, educator Art. A. Alferov and others.

  • Keywords: Russian Orthodox Church, Caucasus, Abkhazia, Bishop Andrei (Ukhtomsky), “Employee of the Transcaucasian Mission.”
