State and Church: Studies in Medieval Bulgaria and Byzantium Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This collection presents thirteen studies dedicated to the history of medieval Bulgaria and Byzantium from the sixth to the fifteenth centuries. Offering snapshots of the cumulative expertise of three generations of Bulgarian scholars over a quarter of a century, it explores issues of critical import for the functioning of the church and state in medieval Bulgaria, and their intimate linkages to similar phenomena in Byzantium. A historiographical introduction tracing the development of the field in Bulgaria since the late nineteenth century and an annotated bibliography make this volume particularly useful to Byzantinists and scholars of the medieval Balkans.

Book News Annotation:

Mostly Bulgarian medievalists explore issues critical to the functioning of church and state in Bulgaria from the sixth to the 15th centuries, and their intimate connection to similar phenomena in Byzantium. Among the topics are religious aspects of medieval state ideology in the European southeast, Byzantine fortresses to the south of the Hemus Mountains in the light of coin finds from the last decades of the sixth century, the perspective of the Bulgarian past in the court of Preslav about 900 AD, the first two centuries of the archbishopric of Ohrid, and the Athonite Slavs in the Middle Ages.
