Abstract:

The paper deals with the life and work of priest Georgi Marinov Poluganov (1808 – 1888) – the most eminent personality of Polikraishte, Veliko Tarnovo region, Bulgaria, in the entire 19th century. It is shown that he founded the school in the village in 1847 and became its first teacher. His role as an organizer and basic actor in the two sublemest socio-political events in Polikraishte during this period: the solemn welcome of Ilarion Makariopolski, the first Tarnovo Bishop at the establishment of the Bulgarian Exarchate in 1872; and the welcome ceremony in honour of the Russian liberating forces in 1877, is examined, as well. His participation in the revolutionary committee of the Internal Revolutionary Organization, established by Vasil Levski, and in the committee for the preparation and declaration of the April Uprising in 1876 when he was persecuted by the Turks and was threatened with hanging, are also highlighted.
