The book about Rila Monastery and its market ‘fault’ in the eyes of the public

The book The Murals at the Catholicon of Rila Monastery and the case of its point that has been arousing a controversy for months now, has been highly acclaimed even outside academe. We are offering the editorial of SKIF e-edition at http://skif.bg/index.php/knigi/nagradi/2916-kniga-presledvana-ot-targovtzi-v-hrama-vze-nagradata-pitagor.

Is a fundamental scholarly book a materialistic endeavour or an effort to ‘move mountains’ when it comes to Bulgarian culture? It is no great hardship to judge considering that law clearly enough makes a distinction between the former and the latter.
