A history of the First Bulgarian Empire

Steven Runciman







Note—I have not attempted to cite every modern work that touches on the history of the First Bulgarian Empire, but have restricted myself to those works that I have consulted and consider to be of interest and value. Further bibliographies are given by Zlatarski (Istoriya, i., 1 & 2), and Dvornik (op. cit. below). I have not been able to consult works published since the end of 1929.

With regard to the Greek original sources, I have referred where possible to the editions in the Bonn Corpus, as being the most easily obtainable. The text of Theophanes, however, has been revised by De Boor (Leipzig, 1883), whose edition should be consulted on all doubtful passages.
