Hey there! 

I'm looking for materials on relations between churches and the state in Bulgaria. I mean Constitution, legal acts, agreements between the state and churches (religious communities), studies about - for example - legal status of churches, financing (dotations for schools, both religious and secular maintaned by church or religious community, hospitals), teaching religion at schools, regulations of labour and criminal law related to religion and religious support in public institutions like army and prisons. 

I've already wrote a short essay on subject Church - State Relations in Hungary using a book released by one of the Ministries (I don't remember the name of it). 

I ask for materials in English or German. I don't know Bulgarian or Russian. I would like to use them in my Master
degree work. 

I thank everyone in advance.

being gay in the land of the slavs. [10 Jul 2007|08:54am]


I remember seeing a very vague older post about a gay Russian man coming to the U.S., and a meme about homophobia that received weird attention (but it was a meme, so whatever).

As an ally to the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, trans-sexual) community, I sometimes wonder about the difficulties associated with being non-heterosexual in my home in the Balkans.  As in, I don't know anyone who is openly gay from over there, and it must be because of the fear of being persecuted.  
(I heard about a pride parade in Belgrade several years ago, and people were harassed and violently assaulted because of their participation in it.)

What is the staus of gays (and other LGBT) folks in Slavic countries?

Slavic unity [06 Jun 2006|11:34pm]

Hi Slavs!
One little question. What do u think of panslavism?
Is the idea of Slavic unity now definitely dead? (after the referendum of Montenegro)

P.S. I don't  speak about a political doctrine, rather about some kind of economic or cultural cooperation.

Last night was the Gogol Bordello concert here in Boulder,

and I have to say it was like the most amazing thing ever,

All the guitars had flags of balkan countries of them, and the drums had a big crest of croatia on them.

the lead singer from Ukraine is the sexiest ukrainian alive.

Need help with Slovenian text. [01 Apr 2006|10:26pm]

This text is using Unicode. Any odd characters should be a lowercase c with hacek. It is from a piece of music by Lojze Lebic called "Dogodki II".

Can anyone tell me what it means?

"Rog in fagot s tremolom zvočil kot so: flavta na poteg, okarina, ustnik kljunaste flavte ali podobnimi sledita zaznačeni konfiguraciji. Pri tem naj zvočno ne preglasita ostalih."

Voronezh...... [12 Feb 2006|08:06pm]

[ mood | content ]

Воронеж (Voronezh) is a city in Russia - is Воронеж (Voronezh) or Воронежа (Voronezha, for a woman I would assume) ever used as a last name? Anyone know? If anyone knows, I would love to know too, so... Reply all you want!

Also, I might be spending a month in Moldova this summer doing intensive russian study!

Greetings! I am a Pole, with some Russian blood. My family fled from Poland (most of them lived around Łomża) just pre-WW2, and changed their surname from "Czerwiński" to "Alan," the first name in the baby book, so that they wouldn't be discriminated against. Now I'm stuck with an idiotic last name no one can spell, because the surname Alan should be with two l's, and possibly an e...

Everyone in the family has basically abandoned their Slavic heritage in favour of blending in with America/Canada. I'm the first one with any interest in finding out about Poland, and the ol' family thinks I'm nuts. I've been trying to learn Polish with a really crappy tourist freeware program, but haven't really got much farther than nie wiem. I have a huge interest in all aspects of Slavic culture, not just Polish.

And I wouldn't have joined, but that crazy trading card in the user info clinched it! Now I must get around to reading War and Peace, just to throw it at others.
