SlavoBulgarian Anti-Macedonian Struggle, 1897-1903

Columbus, 1492 and the Bulgarian Sailor Dragan

Recently we witness a new flux of FYROM propaganda in the net by claiming a so-called “Macedonian” called Dragan, sailed together with Columbus’s crew back in 1492. Unfortunately for the falsificators of history, their baseless claim is exposed in the book “Facts about American Immigration” of David M. Brownstone and Irene M. Franck where through the evidence presented by the authors about the Balkanians migrating […]

Macedonian Intellectuals of late Byzantine Thessalonike

After the Byzantine reconquest of Thessalonike in 1246, the first outstanding intellec­tual in the city seems to have been a certain John Pothos Pediasimos, whose identity was recently reconsidered in a convincing manner from a puzzle of source material by Costas Constantinides.
