In 1806 the first early Bulgarian book Nedelnik (Kiriakodromion) written by Sofronii of Vratsa was printed. The book became popular as Sofronie.

It was published in Rome. The collection contained Sunday and festive preaching, which had not only religion trends but also non-clerical and educational. The book encouraged the development of the National Revival literature and the local book printing. After the Sofronii’s Nedelnik the Bulgarian book entered tangibly the life of the educated Bulgarians.
