The Ethnonym of the Vlachs in the Written Sources and the Toponymy in the Historical Region of Macedonia (11th-16th Cent.) More Information

The present demo version is the result of a scholarly project, which was submitted by the digital cluster project “Digitising Patterns of Power (DPP)” at the Institute for Medieval Research (Austrian Academy of Sciences, Vienna) and the Ss. Cyril and Methodius University of Skopje (Faculty of Philosophy, Institute for History). It focuses on the interplay between the resident population and the nomads (i.e. the Vlachs) in the historical region of Macedonia from the 11th to the 16th centuries.

This region at the crossroads of Orthodoxy, Roman Catholicism and Islam and the question of the origin of the Vlachs, who identify themselves as a separate ethnic group until modern times, as well as the ethnonym "Vlachs" and its derivatives in the form of toponyms and personal names are at the core of the joint research. Hereby, historical and archaeological research is combined with Digital Humanities.

The project, which was successfully submitted by the project coordinators Doz. Dr. Mihailo Popović and Prof. Dr. Toni Filiposki, is funded by the Centre for International Cooperation & Mobility (ICM) of the Austrian Agency for International Cooperation in Education and Research (OeAD-GmbH) for two years (2016-18) and forms an additional case study within DPP.

Project teams:

Toni Filiposki (project leader / Skopje), Boban Petrovski (Skopje), Nikola Minov (Skopje), Vladimir Kuhar (Skopje), Boban Gjorgjievski (Skopje)

Mihailo Popović (project leader / Vienna), Jelena Nikić (Vienna), David Schmid (Vienna)
