UNESCO and Bulgaria to mark 300th anniversary since the birth of Paisius of Hilendar

At the proposal of Bulgaria, the 300th anniversary since the birth of Paisius of Hilendar has been included in the UNESCO list of commemorations and anniversaries for 2022-2023. The list was approved at the 41st session of the UNESCO General Conference. The 300th birth anniversary of Paisius of Hilendar will be celebrated in 2022 with national as well as international events.

Paisius is the figure marking the start of the Bulgarian National Revival. In 1747 he became a monk at Hilandar monastery. In 1762 he wrote Slav-Bulgarian History, laying the foundations of the new-Bulgarian national idea that Bulgarians shall be liberated from the Ottoman Empire through education, work and faith.
