Abstract:

The study is an overview and analysis of the opinions of Bulgarian historians about the Bulgarian mentality during the first three centuries of the Ottoman rule. The topic is very debatable and only four authors stand out with contributions, but these are some of the most famous representatives of our national historiography in the twentieth century – Peter Mutafchiev, Hristo Gandev, Dimitar Angelov, Nikolay Genchev. Their research and opinions are presented along with other issues related to the topic of the study. The studies of the so-called “People's Psychology” for the period are untenable. The main approach in such research should be focused on cultural processes.

Keywords:

Mentality, People’s Psychology, Bulgarian folk psychology, 15th–17th century
