Summary/Abstract: This article aims to show the main stages of the job of the historian with the written archival documents in a theoretical aspect. It has been made an attempt for an introduction of more modern and scientifically adequate names of these stages in the Bulgarian scientific terminology. Four stages are presented in the following order: heuristic, textological, axiological and archaeographic. The thesis of the author is that the work of the historian in the archives is one logical and algorithmic sequence of stages and procedures that are interconnected and whose compliance guarantees to some degree the quality of his/ her research studies.
