Travels in European Turkey in 1850

Sunday, September 14th, 2008

I’ll present JUST ONE BOOK written by Edmund Spencer who traveled to Macedonia and other parts of Ottoman Turkey in 1850. He clearly tells us that the population of Macedonia was Greek, Bulgarian, and Servian that the Osman’s fear would begin insurrections. Furthermore, well before the establishment of the Bulgarian Exarchate, Spencer clearly describes the people of Uskiub (Skopje ), Zagochori (in Epirus), and Bitoglia (Bitola/Monastiri)… he also explains that they attend the Greek church, in Bitola, but clearly states that the congregation of that church is mostly Bulgarian, with a few Greeks, and Zinzars.This boo0k was written in 1851 well before the Excharhate  schism of 1870.

NO MENTION OF ANY MAKEDONSKIANS! JUST GREEKS, ALBANIANS(ARNOUTS), BULGARIANS, ARMENIANS, AND ZINZARS (VLACHS)

People of Turkey 1878

 A cultural struggle between Greeks and Bulgarians in Thrace and Macedonia, with absolutely no mention what so ever of a “Macedonian” ethnicity in 1878.Where are these people where have they been?Why is every book that is written before 1944 never refers to these people as an enthicity??
