In this project we are working on publishing a book dedicated to the 80th birthday of Professor Alexander Fol (July 3, 1933 – March 1, 2006). We are a group of young researchers inspired personally by Alexander Fol and we research and study at different universities and institutes in different countries: Senior Research Assistant Dr. Kalin Stoev – Centre of Thracology "Prof. Alexander Fol” Sofiа at the BAS Sofia; Ivan Marinov – Doctoral Candidate at the University of Montréal; Dimitar Tsakov – Doctoral candidate at the Freie Universität Berlin; Georgi Mishev – Doctoral candidate at the University of Library Studies and Information Technologies, Sofia; Ekaterina Ilieva – New Bulgarian University, Sofia. Our group includes also Prof. Dr. Valeria Fol who has responded to our invitation to join our group. We are trying to develop Prof. Alexander Fol’s ideas and maintain his work at our respective institutions, because we share his view that the Thracian civilization and cultural heritage form an integral part of Bulgarian as well as European culture. In the planned volume we will publish articles on issues within the scientific fields developed by Professor Alexander Fol: Thracian political history; Political and cultural relations of the people from the Southeastern Europe in antiquity; Faith, ritualism and religiosity of the Thracians; Literary and oral Orphism which helps to define the spirituality in Southeastern Europe after the 2nd millennium B.C.; Thracians in the Roman Empire and Late Antiquity; Interpretation and reinterpretation of important archeological objects and finds in the European Southeast; Interaction between literary and oral cultures; Philosophy of history; The Person as a subject and object of their own study and the ability of being in different spaces and times.
