Description

Session II in this pair of sessions on "A Neglected Empire" (I and II) examines aspects of Bulgarian imperial policies and processes, "From Center to Periphery and Beyond." Our papers assess the significant roles played by the imperial capital Tărnovo in the formation and fortunes of the Bulgarian Empire between 1185/86 and 1393; report on the Middle Bulgarian transmission of anti-heretical treatises in compilations of Canon Law, as preserved in manuscripts now in Moscow, Saint Petersburg, and Sofia; and analyze the "multiple-contact zone" of Medieval Southern Europe constituted during this period not so much by isolated homogenous cultures, but rather by a multitude of cultural practices involving Medieval Bulgarian and Early Ottoman interactions.
