Published on July 23rd, 2009 | by Admin


The remains of a 13th-century monastery and a silver ring from medieval France have been found in central Bulgaria.

The discovered remains are thought by Ovcharov to be parts of the Monastery of the Bulgarian Patriarch in the thirteenth century, which is believed to have been the centre of the Tarnovo Patriarchate at the time of the Union of the Bulgarian Orthodox Church with the Catholic Church in the Vatican that lasted from 1204, when Pope Innocent III declared the Bulgarian Tsar Kaloyan (1197-1207) “King of Bulgarians and Wallachians” (“rex Bulgarorum et Blachorum”), until 1246.
