Gurians

Gurians, a historical people of West Caucasia, whose territory lies on the Black Sea coast south of the river Rion. They are members of the Georgian family [Georgians], and closely resemble the Georgians proper in usages, speech, and traditions. But there are two physical types, that of the uplands, distinguished by blue eyes and light hair, and that of the lowlands, marked by black eyes and black hair. The Gurians, originally subjects of the princes of Imeritia, acquired their independence in the fifteenth century, but were soon afterwards reduced by the Turks who were succeeded by the Russians in 1810 (Teule, Pensees, etc., vol. ii.).

“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Romans 8:38-39
