Gjorgji Makedonski (1864)

I was born from my father priest Dimitar and mother Vaskresija as the seventh child of twelve children, five males and seven females. The Slavic letter I learnt from my father, Dimitar Macedonian, who is called like that because we are Macedonians, not Greeks, and his father was called Joseph the priest, and his grandfather Stojmen the priest. I took…

Just because the Slavs of Macedonia call themselves Macedonians, there was no reason why we or you should consent to give them a name which coincides with a piece of territory.

Are you a Serb? Are you Bulgarian? Grecian or Albanian? On this series of questions, the Macedonian people, today as yesterday, were giving the same answer – I am Macedonian.

In the part of Macedonia now subject to Greek rule the language of the current ruling authority is barely understood in the country … When you ask the people what their nationality is they almost always reply ‘We are Macedonians!’

Macedonians fought side-by-side with the Greeks during the long and bitter struggle for Grecian independence. When the Servians revolted, Macedonians swarmed through the mountain passes to render assistance; when the Bulgarian rebellion broke out, Macedonians hurried to stand side-by-side to fight, and, if necessary to die with men of an alien race having nothing in common with themselves but hatred…

Don’t fool yourself, Despot, the national spirit in Macedonia has attained such a state that Jesus Christ himself, if he were to descend from heaven, could not convince a Macedonian that he is a Bulgarian or a Serb, except for those Macedonians in whom Bulgarian propaganda has already taken root.

•  1902  • Macedonians! Remember the world’s winner, the great glory of Macedonia, the great Alexander of Macedon; remember for the brave King Samoil, the Macedonian giant, for the marvelous Marko Kral, the Slavic glory, that Macedonian blood flowed through them; those of heavenly heights watch and bless our initiated work.

The Macedonians, who have their own separate language and indisputable ethnic originality, do not have the right to be called Macedonians.

It happens that Macedonians who come to Bulgaria continue to call themselves Macedonians … In Bulgaria, whether they are descended from a Macedonian who travelled eastward in 1878, or whether they are quite recent emigrants, they call themselves Macedonians. p.627

Let them once and for all understand that Bulgarian state nationalism, for which they want to frequently be praised, from 1890 to the present, and Macedonian patriotism are two different things, and not only do they have nothing in common, but they are in direct confrontation with one another. Therefore, all the actions of the Bulgarian government, directed against the…

The Slavophone population of Serbian Macedonia definitely regard themselves as distinct from the Serbs. If asked their nationality they say that they are Macedonians, and they speak the Macedonian dialect. • • • The inhabitants here [Aegean Macedonia] are no more than the Macedonians of Serbia – they speak Macedonian they call themselves Macedonians.
