The "Good Pope"

The Bulgarian Exarchy and the Bulgarian uniat are part of a common national system – when one institution is in crisis due to a hostile political environment, its content flows into the other, and vice versa. This is a unique expression of the Bulgarian renaissance consciousness and political wisdom in the historical chronology of the Bulgarian church and national issue. In short - long before appearance of the modern political thinking of United Europe, the renaissance Bulgarians learned from their own bitter experience how to find a way out through a strategic balance between East and West.
