  2. I’ve been waiting for this one. An excellent episode!

  3. When the ruler of Bulgaria asked for advice on how a Christian monarch should rule in certain situations, did he get those answers in writing? I’d love to read the responses he received.

  4. Konstantinos

    I think I have heard in the podcast that the Macedonian language was formed at that time.
    There is no Macedonian language but Bulgarian language.
    This is completely historically wrong and misconceived.
    The mixed people of the Bulgarian empire at that time they did not identify themselves with anything like Macedonian.
    Besides this it was also mentioned that the people of the Balkans they would never be Roman again.
    This is also wrong because not all of today’s Greece was conquered and Greece is also part of the Balkan peninsula.
