Summary/Abstract: The text traces the cult of being first, a seminal phenomenon at the time of the Bulgarian National Renaissance. The semantic fields are reconstructed which encompass the ideological units about the priority of Bulgarian’s medieval civilisation vis-а-vis all Eastern Orthodox Slavs. The dogged insistance is evoked of ingenious bookmen and tireless non-fiction authors concerning the priority of a number of 19th century Bulgarian developments in a chronological or regional aspect. We touch upon some of the shadows of the primacy of various texts from the Bulgarian National Renaissance left upon the humanities in our time.
