==Organization==
With the downfall of the Soviet Union and the resulting independence of the country of Georgia, a great revival has taken place for the Church of Georgia. As of 2002, eighty percent of the population of Georgia has identified themselves as Orthodox Christians. The church itself was organized into 35 [[diocese]]s, with 512 churches. The church in Georgia of some 3.5 million people was served by 730 [[priest]]s.
