The spread of Christianity in modern Georgia until the 4th century is still little known. The first documented event in this process is the sermon of St. Nino and its consequences, although exact dates are still being discussed. St. Nino, revered as an equal to the apostles, was traditionally the daughter of a Roman general from Cappadocia. She preached in the kingdom of Iberia (also known as Kartli) in the first half of the fourth century, and her intercession ultimately led to the transformation of King Mirian III, his wife, the Queen (later Saint) of Nana and their family. Kirill Tumanovdates Mirian's appeal to 334, his official baptism and the subsequent adoption of Christianity as the official religion of Iberia to 337. From the first centuries AD, e. The cult of Mithras, pagan beliefs and Zoroastrianism is usually practiced in Georgia. However, now they began to gradually decrease, even though Zoroastrianism became the second established religion of Iberia after the world of Acilisene in 378, or more precisely by the middle of the fifth century. The royal baptism and organization of the Church were performed by priests sent from Constantinople from Constantine the Great. The transformation of people into Kartli occurred quickly on the plains, but pagan beliefs existed for a long time in mountainous areas. The western kingdom of Egrisi was politically and culturally different from Kartli at that time and more culturally more integrated into the Roman Empire; some of his cities were already bishops by the time of the First Council of Nicaea
