Summary/Abstract: The list of the Archbishops of Bulgaria that was published by Du Cange in the late 17th century has been edited many times in various countries. This list, which is a precious source for the history of the Archdiocese of Ochrid, was known until recently only by one manuscript in the Biblioteque Nationale in Paris, which was brought to light by Du Cange. Recently the list of the Archbishops of Bulgaria was found in two more codices. Professor Dr. V. Tapkova-Zaimova found it in the codex No Mosq. Syn. Gr. 286 from the collection of the Moscow State Historical Museum (it was published by S. Barlieva). Professor Dr. A. A. Tachiaos found it in the codex No 18 of the Public Library of Tyrnavo, Greece. In this article the list of the Archbishops of Bulgaria is republished on the basis of the codices No Paris. Gr. 880, Mosq. Syn. Gr. 286 and Tyrnavo 18. Note has also been taken of the interventions of H. Gelzer and J. Ivanov in the edition of the Paris codex as well as those of S. Barlieva in the edition of the Moscow codex.
