THE STATE OF ISLAM IN POST-COMMUNIST BULGARIA
This paper doesn't seek to provide a scholarly analysis on Islam in Bulgaria after 1989. Rather, its intention is to provide useful insights on a number of questions, pertaining to Bulgaria's Muslim population and its relationship to Islam: How pervasive has the "Islamic revival" been in Bulgaria since 1990? What has been the state of the Muslim religious authorities in the country? How successful have foreign influences been in aiding not only the "Islamic revival", but also in spreading a different, "radical" version of Islam? And what are the public perceptions on Islam in Bulgaria, particularly among the Christian, ethnic Bulgarians?
