Quote: Boris was familiar with the work of Cyril and Methodius, the inventors of the Slavic alphabet, as early as 881-882.

The sentence was remained intact as I have no idea what Slavic alphabet the previous posters are referring to. Could it be Glagolitic alphabet or Cyrillic alphabet as mentioned several sentences later? kt2 02:38, 12 Nov 2003 (UTC)


There is not a single historical source claiming the Bulgarian monarch's title was Khan.The Bulgarians called their leader Kanasubigi(leader placed from God in old iranic) as we can see from their own stone inscriptions. —Preceding unsigned comment added by BulgarEmperor (talkcontribs) 07:51, 6 October 2007 (UTC)

There seems to be a major confusion of the terms Bulgar and Bulgarian in this article. The Bulgars were tribes that migrated into the Balkans in the 600s, where they allied and blended with the local and more numerous Slavic tribes and the older Thracian/Byzantine population, to produce the Bulgarian nation: Bulgars + Slavs + Byzantine population = Bulgarians The term "Bulgar" is limited only to the original Bulgar tribes. By the time of Boris it is appropriate to speak of Bulgarian nation, in which the Bulgars were only one of the composing ethnic elements. To prevent further confusion the term proto-Bulgars may be appropriate. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2602:30A:C007:6D10:EC9E:D7FC:BE7B:C7EB (talk) 03:58, 20 October 2013 (UTC)

Boris / Fine[edit]

User:165.225.32.70 has been editing warring over a passage clearly sourced to Fine. The user is up to four reverts in under six hours. The discussion from Fine is here. Contrary to the suggestion in the edit summary here, the text (and source) say that Boris was surprised by the attack and promised to convert. If you have contrary sources, please cite and discuss them before removing the content ante, per WP:BRD. Laszlo Panaflex (talk) 21:23, 24 May 2016 (UTC)
