Today is the anniversary of Dr Peter Beron’s death

The very first BG Revival period figures, Paisi Hilendarski and Sofronii Vrachanski, were closely connected to church. In the 1820s though, a new generation of educated men emerged, coming from educated families of traders and well-to-do Bulgarians, educated in the new-Greek schools but frustrated by the fast-developing new-Greek chauvinism. Among them, a special place should be attributed to Dr Peter Beron.

In 1824 Dr Peter Beron, one of the few Bulgarians of that time to have received college education abroad - in Heidelberg, Germany, published his remarkable primer known as 'ABC of the Fish'. It contained grammar, natural science, arithmetic, anatomy and literature. In this book Dr Peter Beron pleaded for the introduction of the progressive Bell-Lancaster method of education in the Bulgarian schools of the future. After that memorable event, it took only a few decades for 1500 primary schools and dozens of secondary schools to be established in the Bulgarian lands. All these had been set up on the analogy of the most advanced European patterns. Thousands of Bulgarians enrolled in the universities of Russia, France, Germany, Austria-Hungary and Britain. Highly educated elite gradually evolved in a short time to take the Bulgarian literature, press and the arts in Bulgarian capable hands.
