Through the ethnographic study of traditions, rituals and customs transmitted among Fereydani Georgians repatriates now living in Tbilisi, the author tries to answer to the question of how such a group has managed to survive as such over almost four centuries of settlement in central Iran. The author notably insists on the continuity of the practice of Georgian domestic architecture and of the endogamy of Fereydani women as key elements in the preservation of identity among Fereydani Georgians in Iran.
