Original 17th century manuscript found by Bulgarian researcher

The original manuscript of a history of Bulgaria, written in the 17th century and believed to be the first written by a Bulgarian, has been found by Professor Liliya Ilieva of Southwestern University Neofit Rilski.

The tractate, written by Petar Bogdan (Petrus Deodatus) had been considered to be lost, although a small fragment of the text was known in an edition by the Croation priest and philologist Ivan Pastrić.

Ilieva found the original manuscript, running to close to 200 pages, with a preface, 70 chapters, some documents and an epilogue.../IBNA
