Summary/Abstract: Much has been written on and discussed about the Balkan nation of Vlachs. Despite that, they have remained a historical mystery of the Mediterranean region and even wider. The reason for this is the fact that Vlachs (also called Cincars) do not have a defined ethnic and political area. They also do not have their particular cultural, educational and spiritual institutions. Historical research of Vlachs gave often conflicting results and these researches are the subject of this book. The author has treated the subject chronologically because Vlachs appeared very early in the multiethnic region of Balkan. Accordingly the book is divided into following chapters: “Vlachs in the works of Byzantine writers”, “Vlachs in the Turkish historiography”, “Vlachs in the medieval Latin chronicles, Imperial and Papal letters”. The author has also made a general cultural and geographical division - Vlachs in Balkan historiographies and Vlachs in Western historiographies including, as a separate chapter, Vlachs in Russian historiography.
