Founded in 681

Post  kosovohp on Thu Mar 03, 2011 4:08 am

Founded in 681 as a pagan state, Bulgaria was formally Christianised by Byzantine clergy in the 860s, under Prince Boris (r. 852889). The right to convert Bulgaria to Christianity was the subject of a political dispute between Byzantium and the Papacy.[1][2] With the conversion to Christianity, Boris hoped to solve internal ethnic issues and improve the foreign relations of his state, which was not treated equally by the Christian rulers of Europe.[3]
