On the Day of the People’s Awakeners, an exhibition of old printed editions from the fund of the Regional History Museum in Razgrad was opened in the house-museum “Stanka and Nikola Ikonomovi”.
The event was immediately after the city-wide celebration for November 1.
The director of the museum, Tanya Todorova, introduced the youngest visitors – children from the KG “Mitko Palauzov”, to the house that hosts the exhibition and told them briefly about Stanka and Nikola Ikonomovi.
“In several separate showcases, we show the paths before the Bulgarians, already indicated by Paisius in his “Slavic Bulgarian History”, in order to have our own state”, said at the presentation of the exhibition its author – Prof. Rositsa Angelova PhD, head of the department “New and latest history” in RHM-Razgrad.
Periodicals from the Renaissance era have their place in the shop windows as the fastest way to get information back then.
The work of the teacher, as the strongest, most public socially-positioned person during the Renaissance, is presented in a separate corner with photos and various textbooks and teaching aids.
In the comfort of the house of the famous revivalists Stanka and Nikola Ikonomovi, liturgical editions are also displayed, which outline another of the paths in the struggle for an independent church, because “… even with reason one can want to have Bulgarianness, to have Bulgaria”. ” But for some, neither the feather nor the cassock is enough, some want a scimitar as well. Therefore, in a separate display case, we have exhibited historical texts that aim to wake up the Bulgarians, to grab them, in addition to the book and the cross, but also the weapon”, said Prof. Rositsa Angelova.
And as an illustration of how highly prepared and how much the revivalists travel, revised or translated editions of French books are arranged in a separate display case. “Thanks to translated fiction, the people of our lands understand that they have to fight to live better in their country”, summed up the concept of the exhibition, Prof. Angelova.
