  • Book: Mythical pictures of the South Slavs

    on Apr 19, 17 • in Anthropology, Archaeology, Book, Ethnography, Etnology, History, Middle Ages, News, Religion, Republic of Macedonia, Tradition • with Comments Off


    The pagan religion and mythology of the Slavs has been systematically researched for over two hundred years. The results of the research turned out especially promising in the second half of the 20th century when the researchers began using modern interdisci- plinary methods. Thus not only history, linguistics and ethnology but also many other sciences were given the opportunity to contribute to the enlightenment of the original Slavic religion. However, it has to be said that even today in spite of the strong academic interest and the enormous corpus of the research papers, the study

  • Book: The coins of Paeonia

    on Apr 7, 16 • in Antiquty, Archaeology, Art, Book, Classical period, Coins, History, News, Republic of Macedonia • with Comments Off


    The ancient Paeonian population that existed in the south part of the Balkan Peninsula, inhabited the vast geographic area which today enters within the territory of Bulgaria and Greece, but а part of this historical region comprises motely the territory of Republic of Macedonia. Regretfully, Paeonia was mentioned by the ancient authors sporadically, and it was usually related to certain historical events which involved the Paeonians. So, beginning with Homer in the VIII century BC, the data about Paeonia and Paeonians could be further evidenced in the writings of later authors such as Thucydides, Polybius, Strabo, Livy, Justin etc., but also in the epigraphic sources, which

    Ljubo Fidanoski Cerje – Govrlevo and Miloš Bilbija The Balkan Peninsula has long been known for its rich history, culture and tradition. Many different cultures with different views of the world and their immediate surrounding have lived and are still living here, a state characteristic of this region even today, and will probably carry on in the future.
