New Bulgarian University
Sofia, 21-24 May 2011



Sophia is particularly green and beautiful in May and will provide an intellectual and social environment for the conference with the National Holyday (May 24) devoted to the Alphabet designed by Cyril and Methodius and their students. Sophia has remains from the Thracians (particularly the famous Thracian gold treasure), the Romans (an intact Rotunda St. George from 4th century CE, the city walls, baths, etc.), the Byzantines (particularly the 6th Century Church of St. Sophia), and the medieval Bulgarians (the 10th Century Boyana Church world famous for its 1259 CE frescoes with realistic images before the Renaissance has started in Italy).
