Summary/Abstract: This book offers an overall research on the history of mediaeval Bulgarian women trying to encompass all aspects of life over the whole period of existence of Bulgaria during the Middle Ages. The first chapter of the book is devoted to the task of revealing as much thoroughly as possible the mediaeval model about the woman, about her place and role in society, the term ideological model constituting the combination of religious, ethic, social and political and esthetical notions, concepts and ideas about women characteristic for the mediaeval Bulgarian society. All data about women’s rights and obligations that can be found in mediaeval Bulgarian legal sources are thoroughly analyzed in the second chapter of the book. The peculiarities of the sources revealed and the goals set to be achieved in the first two chapters of the book define the main aim of the last part, which is to try to reveal the real presence of women in the economic, religious and political life in mediaeval Bulgaria.
