Gutenberg’s “Appeal to Christendom against the Turks” of 1454 and the Bulgarians

Author(s): Vasil Gyuzelev
Subject(s): History
Published by: Асоциация Клио
Keywords: Johannes Gutenberg; Bulgarians; Christendom; Turks

Summary/Abstract: The paper deals with the translation and publication of the oldest entirely preserved book “Eyn Manung der Christenheit widder die Durken” printed by Johannes Gutenberg in 1454, at present kept at the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek in Münich (Handschriften- und Inkunabelnabteilung, Rar. 1). Beside commenting on the book, the author subjects to analysis the information about the Bulgarians (Wulgarischen) and today’s Bulgarian capital Sofia (Sant Sophia). Attention is drawn to the necessity of an overall study of the references to the Bulgarians and the Bulgarian lands in the rich and varied German printed literature published in the second half of the 15th century.
