KRUMKA SHAROVA THE IDEA OF STA TE TRADITION AND THE RESTORA TION OF THE BULGARIAN STA TE D URING THE NATIONAL REVIVAL UNTIL 18 70 Bulgaria, which had been conquered by the Turks, was a country with a rich past, of her own historical life and major cultural achievements. The people, having fallen under foreign rule, were exposed to several centuries of unrestricted exploitation, arbitrariness, political, religious, and national dis- crimination. However, they were not defeated. The nation's development was forcibly retarded; but its internal national forces were preserved despite the tremendous losses, innumerable sufferings, and the Ottoman feudal system which hampered its progress. Even when the Ottoman Empire was at the height of its power at the end of the seventeenth century, when the powerful coun- tries of the then Central Europe were able to wage only defensive wars against the Turkish conquests, the Bulgarians had their own national life. It was full of sufferings and losses, but at the same time it was also full of continuous struggles against foreign domination as well as for the preservation and con- tinuation of their national cultural traditions, for their self-defense, and the restoration of the Bulgarian state.
