Summary/Abstract: In the personal archives of the well-known Bulgarian historian Vasil N. Zlatarski (1866-1935) which is to be found in the Archives of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, fund 9, there is an archival unit No. 363 entitled Slavobulgarian History by Father Païsy of Hilandar and Its Sources. This is a ms. consisting of 40 big-format sheets which presents a course taught by Zlatarski at the Faculty of History and Philology (Sofia University) in the period between 1898 and 1914. The article presents a brief summary of this course and assesses its scholarly value. At the same time, some of Zlatarski's theses are subject to adverse criticism. Nonetheless, Zlatarski's attempt to identify the sources of Païsy's History merit attention and his course is worth publishing.
