  • Spisek Jana przeciw carowi Piotrowi (928) - raz jeszcze

    • Authors: Mirosław Jerzy Leszka
      Pages: 5 - 14
      Abstract: The article refers to a repeatedly discussed subject of the rebellion staged by John, the son of Simeon I of Bulgaria, against Peter his (?)step-brother. The author of the study has reanalysed sources on the plot for motives of  the conspiracy, its scope,  attitude of the Byzantine Empire towards the rebellion and John’s fate after the year 928. The conspiracy has been concluded to have primarily been an aspect of the struggle for power amongst the successors of Simeon. which is not supposed to have been instigated by Byzantium in any way.

  • Pan Kubrat i jego pięciu synów. Teofanesa wizja przybycia Bułgarów na
           Półwysep Bałkański

    • Authors: Kirił Marinow
      Pages: 15 - 34
      Abstract: The Bulgarians’ settlement in the Lower Danube area constituted one of the most significant events in the history of the Balkan Peninsula in the Middle Ages. The Danube Bulgaria’s rise and its territorial expansion changed the political situation in this area. The Bulgarians became Byzantium’s chief opponents in the struggle for establishing ascendancy over the Balkan Peninsula. The analysis of Theophanes’ Chronography, which remains, in addition to the account by Patriarch Nikephoros, the main source of information about these events supports the conclusion that this Byzantine author took a very negative view of the effects of the arrival of these nomads in the former Byzantine territories. Although this account has been analysed in detail by a number of scholars, these authors have paid no attention to the key role of the tale of Khan Kubrat and the disobedience of his five sons who failed to remain faithful to his last wish. The significance of the personal experiences of Theophanes, who witnessed the Bulgarian expansion during the era of Khan Krum, is also omitted from today’s discussion of these issues. These experiences contributed to the way in which he viewed the migration of the ancestors of the distinguished Bulgarian ruler. The chronicler may thus be considered to have offered a very clear view of what the readers should think of the Bulgarians’ arrival in the Balkan territories.

  • O tajemniczym poprzedniku wielkiego żupana Serbii Stefana Nemanji,
           zwanym Tihomirem

    • Authors: Błażej Szefliński
      Pages: 35 - 46
      Abstract: The paper is focused on the figure of the predecessor of grand župan Stephen Nemanja. The name of thismysterious person has not been preserved in any source. However mentions in different sources enable toresearch major facts in his life. On the basis of convergent evidence of several sources, his name can bereconstructed as Stephen Tihomir. He was born probably about 1105 as the first son of one of membersof Vukanović dynasty – Stephen Vukan or Zavida. In his childhood he spent a few years in Zeta wherehis father escaped from Raška. There is no data about Tihomir until the year 1165 when he was appointedgrand župan by the emperor Manuel Komnenos. During his short reign he was driven by his brothersto capture the youngest one – Nemanja. However Nemanja managed to flee and take over the throne.Nemanja’s brothers had to escape. They came back with the Byzantine troops commanded by TheodorPadiates but they lost in the battle near Pantino. One of the brothers was drowned in the Sitnica river then.Most scholars believe it was Tihomir but more careful analysis of sources suggests it was another brotherof Nemanja (maybe his name was Constantin), not his predecessor. It is hard to say what happened toTihomir after the battle – maybe he lived in Skopie, maybe he came back to Serbia, acknowledged hisyoungest brother supreme power and received his own principality. If he had come back, he would havedied before September 27th 1186,

  • Muhajirs. Remarks on Muslims’ Emigration from the Bulgarian Lands in
           the Turn of 19th and

    • Authors: Krzysztof Popek
      Pages: 47 - 70
      Abstract: During the Russo-Turkish War (1877–1878) and the first months after that conflict about 500 thousands Muslims emigrated from Bulgarian lands, 250 thousands died because of hostilities, hunger, diseases and cold. The prewar number of Muslim population of Principality of Bulgaria and Eastern Rumelia decreased by about 50%. After the peace, the emigration of Muslims was still progressing – it is estimated that in 1878–1912 350 thousandsMuslims left Bulgarian lands. The paper concentrated on the main causes and effects of that phenomenon: a lack of career possibilities for the Muslim elites, the fear of retaliation for taking part in pogroms during the April Uprising, the so-called Agrarian Revolution, the defeat of rebellions against the new authorities, army recruitment and an inability to adapt to transformations of the Bulgarian society. There are also presented the attitude of Bulgarian authorities to these phenomenon, which had the pivotal meaning for the demographic structure of Bulgarian state: the percent of Muslims declined from 23,5% in 1879\1881 (for Principality of Bulgaria and Eastern Rumelia) to 15% in 1905.

      Abstract: Wybuch I wojny światowej skłonił działaczy Naczelnego Komitetu Narodowego do podjęcia działań na rzecz politycznych celów Polaków na arenie międzynarodowej. W tym celu w kilku państwach europejskich powołane zostały ekspozytury Biura Prasowego NKN. Jedną z nich było Polskie Biuro Prasowe w Bułgarii, na czele którego stanął T. S. Grabowski.

  • "Albańska Golgota" - exodus Serbów na Korfu w czasie I wojny światowej
           w dyskursie publicznym międzywojennej Jugosławii

    • Authors: Paweł Michalak
      Pages: 95 - 108
      Abstract: Both the Balkan Wars and World War I, and particularly the great migration of the Serbian army during the retreat to the Corfu island, which imprinted in the collective memory as the Albanian Golgotha, were among the most important reference points in the public discourse of interwar Yugoslavia. Official government circles tried to present them as the cornerstones for the building of a unified state of the Southern Slavs. The authorities supported all the initiatives which were commemorating those events. King Alexander Karađorđević was one of the most active in this field, he repeatedly personally graced the celebration of all events and battles or honoured their heroes. However, it should be noted that the Albanian Golgotha was such an important point of reference in the public discourse of interwar Yugoslavia not only because it became a kind of an instrument in the hands of politicians, especially the king, but also – and perhaps primarily – because it grew it roots in the broader social discourse, not only in politics but also in the media and culture – literature or the arts. It is also worth  mentioning that the memory of these events was not a homogeneous one. For obvious reasons, it were the Serbs, who excelled in the worship of the Serbian soldiers, who sacrificed their blood for building a common Yugoslav state. While the attitude of Croats and Slovenes was not so clear. Therefore the cult of the Serbian army required an appropriate action from the state. One of the actions was a way of presenting these events in the daily press.The main aim of the author is to show how the cult of the sacrifice of the Serbian soldiers and civilians during World War I, and especially the mythologized Albanian Golgotha, was created and became one of the pillars on which authorities tried to build a Yugoslav identity and the prestige of the Karađorđević dynasty in the interwar period. A special attention is paid to the way of describing those events in the “Politika” daily, the most read and influential journal of interwar Yugoslavi

  • Bułgarzy w obwodzie zaporoskim na Ukrainie: tożsamość

    • Authors: Helena Krasowska
      Pages: 109 - 118
      Abstract:  The Zaporizhzhia oblast was created on 10 January 1939 as part of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic. As is generally known territories of this province were previously belonged to the Golden Horde and from 1554 year to the Crimean Khanate. From the XV to the XVII century northern part of Zaporozhzhia was the Zaporozhian Sich. The presence of the Bulgarian minority living today on the territory of the Zaporizhzhia oblast dates back to the second half of the XIX century. In the years 1861–1862 the Bessarabian Bulgarians established in these areas 34 villages and the Bulgarians from Vidin established 2. There were established 36 Bulgarian villages, now remained 30. After 1990 the Bulgarian cultural societies were created, there are Bulgarian language courses on various levels, the Bulgarian-language press, the folk groups. Bulgaria educates in its universities Ukrainian students of Bulgarian origin, as well as delegates teachers of Bulgarian language to work here. Leaders of the Bulgarian associations are visible in the region and actively participate in the promotion of their own culture.

  • Rola Biljany Plavšić w pierwszych latach istnienia Republiki Serbskiej w
           Bośni i Hercegowinie (BiH) (1992–1998)

    • Authors: Monika Skrzeszewska
      Pages: 119 - 134
      Abstract: Biljana Plavšić was one of the leading politicians of the Republika Srpska in the 90s. During the war (1992–1995) she was called an Iron Lady because of her promotion of extreme nationalist views. This nickname previously belonged to the Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher because she was a strong politician. The question is whether Plavšić was an equally strong politician? After the war, she was the President of the Republika Srpska, but she was against her old political collaborators. In addition, as the only accused, Plavšić admitted her guilt during the Bosnian war in the International Criminal Tribunal of the former Yugoslavia. Her role, however, is usually neglected in the literature about war in Bosnia and Herzegovina, that is why, this article would like to discuss the Plavšić’s role.

      Abstract: The article is based on anthropological fieldwork basing on participant observation andinterviews conducted in 2014 during Program „Sigma” Erazmus Mundus 2 in Tuzla,Lukavac, Sarayevoand Mostar. The interviewees were the members of Polish minority inBosnia and Herzegovina engaged in Polish cultural organisations. The study aimed atunderstanding various types of bonds with Poland as a state or the culture and even familyhistories, as presented in interviews and behaviours. The author poses the question: whyintence development of Polish organisations flourished in the period of war in 1991-1995,inspite of the fact that Polish emigration to Bosnia started in the second half of 19th century. Presently the organizations are fading and even dissapearing. T

  • Contemporary Romanian Migrations to Serbia: Stages, Actors, Reasons

    • Authors: Annemarie Sorescu-Marinkovic
      Pages: 151 - 166
      Abstract: This paper aims at offering insight into the contemporary migration of Romanians towards Serbia, starting with the interwar period, continuing with the communist rule and focusing on the period after the fall of the Romanian communist regime, in 1989. What this study does is delimit the stages of the Romanian migration to Serbia, identify the social categories taking part in these migratory processes, the preferred regions for settling in Serbia, as well as the reasons behind people’s decision to leave the country. I also show how the Romanian emigrants relate to the Romanian autochthonous communities in Serbia (the Vlachs of Eastern Serbia and the Romanians of Vojvodina), in which they usually settle.After presenting the theoretical background relating to ethnic migrations, I introduce a new theoretical concept, reverse ethnic migration, which best fits the situation of contemporary Romanian migrants to Serbia. These migrations take place from a majority (Romanians in Romania) towards a national minority (Romanians or Vlachs in Serbia), thus in an „opposite” direction. The migrations are not state supported and they are individual in most of the cases. I argue that the interwar migrations were state planned, being the result of the Yugoslav-Romanian School Convention from 1933; those taking place during communism were triggered, in many instances, by political reasons; while the post-communist migration was labour oriented.

  • The Valachian way of life in stories about domestic origins in the
           Hungarian medieval chronicles

    • Authors: Ryszard Grzesik
      Pages: 167 - 174
      Abstract: In the paper I analyze the description of the way of life of the Hungarians and the local inhabitants of the Carpathian Basin during the Hungarian Conquest in the Hungarian chronicles: Gesta Hungarorum of the Anonymous Notary of King Béla (III) and Gesta Hungarorum of Master Simon of Kéza. The originally homeland of the Hungarians, called Scythia, was described as a rich land full of pastures and rivers inhabited by happy nomadic people. They left their land because of a fame and found on Tisza and Danube a similar country. According to the chroniclers they met between others the Vlachs who were characterised in a pastoral context by them. They lived in the same semi-nomadic way of life, as the former Hungarians, however, they occurred in Transylvania only in the 12th century, when the Hungarians changed their semi-nomadism to sedentarism. Therefore the semi-nomadic way of the Valachian life was noted as their identification factor by the high-medieval chroniclers.

  • The Function and genesis of the musical instrument “trombita” with
           special focus on the Hutsul region

    • Authors: Justyna Małgorzata Cząstka-Kłapyta
      Pages: 187 - 196
      Abstract: The question of the origins and cultural impact of music cultivated by the Vlachs on the Carpathian music heritage is relatively poorly examined in the previous literature. This is mostly because of insufficient ethno-historical data sources, the short time of detailed documentation of rural folklore, and the collective character of music, which often goes beyond the boundaries of nationality. Most of the previous works dealing with the problem of the Vlachs’ impact on the Carpathian music folklore were presented as a short comments. One of the still unresolved issues is the origin of the shepard’s trumpets (trombitas, horns) in the territory of the Carpathians. It is widely known as “trombita” (the Western Carpathians, Poland), „trembita” (the Ukrainian Carpathians), „trubyela”, „bucium”, and „tulnic” (Romania). They are among the wide type of instruments known by ancient Slavs. According to principal hypothesis these instruments originated in Asia and were transferred to the Carpathian Mountains by migrating Indo-European peoples. Alternative hypothesis suggests that “trembita” was brought to the Carpathians by migrating Roman legionaries, who used this instrument for the signaling functions. The occurrence of these instruments coincides clearly with the area of the Wallachian settlement, allowing the presupposition that the spread of trombita in the Carpathians is linked with the Wallachian colonisation. The problems outlined in this article concerns the spatial distribution and typology of Carpathian trumpets as well as their functions with special focus on the Hutsul region (the Eastern Carpathians, Ukraine), where they still perform important ritual and magical functions, mainly during carolling. The analysis of the function of trombita in this context allows to define its place and importance in the pastoral tradition.

  • Seasonal pastoral exploitation of forests in the area of Subcarpathia in
           the 15th and 16th century

    • Authors: Grzegorz Jawor
      Pages: 175 - 181
      Abstract: The arguments included in the article were based on a small number of information preserved in the sources, which concern a seasonal presence of the Wallachian shepherds in the areas situated north of the line designating the scope of permanent (year-round) rural settlements founded on the Wallachian law. It was practised both in forests belonging to the king as well as in private estates throughout all seasons. This research resulted in the thesis stating that groups of the Wallachian shepherds led a seasonal grazing of their herds in the submontane areas already in the 15th century. Various factors, primarily of an economic nature, made these pastoral activities disappear or, at least, made them significantly limited at the turn of the 16th and 17th century. Pastoralism of a transhumance type existed throughout the entire period under discussion, in modern sources referred to as koszarnictwo (transhumance herding), consisting in periodic migrations of pastoral groups from permanent villages. Similarly to what I have claimed in my previously published research on the Wallachian pastoralism in the Carpathian areas, there are no indications in the sources, which would justify a thesis for a long time widespread in historical studies, on the presence of a nomadic phase in the history of the Wallachian colonization in the Polish areas. Also in the case of the areas currently studied, its existence can be given no confirmation.
