Saint Boris Michael I, Khan of Bulgaria

M, b. before 852, d. 2 May 907
      Saint Boris Michael I, Khan of Bulgaria was also known as Boris Michael Tzar of Bulgaria. He Boris I, baptismal name MIKHAIL, English MICHAEL (d. May 2, 907, Preslav[now Veliki Preslav], Bulgaria), khan of Bulgaria (852-889), whose longreign witnessed the conversion of the Bulgarians to Christianity, thefounding of an autocephalous Bulgarian church, and the advent of Slavonicliterature and establishment of the first centres of Slav-Bulgarianscholarship and education. Boris' active domestic and foreign diplomacywas of great importance in the formation of a united Bulgarian ethniccommunity, and it left lasting traces on Bulgaria's subsequentdevelopment. When Boris inherited the throne from his father, Bulgaria's territorial,military, and political potential had made it one of the largest statesin Europe. Bulgaria's approximate frontiers were the Dnieper River in thenortheast, the Carpathian Mountains in the north, the Tisa (Tisza) Riverin the northwest, the Adriatic Sea in the west, and the Tomorr (Tomor),Belasica, Pirin, Rhodope, and Strandzha mountains in the south. ManySlavic tribes lived within the boundaries of the state, together with theproto-Bulgarians, a tribe of Turkic origin that had settled in the BalkanPeninsula at the end of the 7th century. In view of the religious,ethnic, and language difficulties between the Slavs and the Bulgars, theintroduction of a common and compulsory religion for all subjects was oneof the principal preconditions for the formation of a united Bulgaria.Pagan Bulgaria needed to join the 'family of Christian states,' but theexistence of two competing centres of Christianity--Rome andConstantinople--made it difficult for Boris to make his choice. Borisoriginally intended to accept Roman Christianity, but an unsuccessful warwith the Byzantines forced him to adopt the Orthodox faith ofConstantinople (864). Boris (at his baptism he took the Christian nameMichael), his family, and the nobles who supported his policy werebaptized one night in secret by a Byzantine bishop and priests who hadbeen sent to Pliska, the Bulgarian capital. There was serious oppositionby both the nobility and the common people to Boris' attempt to enforcemass baptism. A pagan rebellion broke out, and Boris retaliated byexecuting 52 boyars, together with their families. Negotiations took place between Boris and Photius, patriarch ofConstantinople, on the status of the Bulgarian diocese but did not leadto the result expected by the Bulgarians. The Byzantines demanded thatthe Bulgarian church organization should be entirely subjected toConstantinople. Dissatisfied, Boris renewed his diplomatic contacts withthe West. In 866 he sent embassies to Pope Nicholas I (858-867) and toKing Ludwig of Germany. The Pope immediately responded by sending amission to Bulgaria. The Roman clergy's stay (866-870) soon became a sorepoint in the acute rivalry between Rome and Constantinople. But sincePope Nicholas I and his successor, Adrian II, proved dilatory on thequestion of church organization in Bulgaria (they hesitated over thecreation of an independent Bulgarian archbishopric), Boris again reopenednegotiations with Constantinople. The Bulgarian church question wasfinally solved at the eighth ecumenical council in Constantinople in869-870. Bulgaria was formally placed under the nominal ecclesiasticaljurisdiction of the patriarch of Constantinople but received anindependent archbishopric. The attempts of the popes to bring theBulgarian ruler back into the Roman church by pleas and promises ofconcessions continued until 882 but produced no results. Boris was quite active in inculcating the Christian faith among theBulgarian people, in organizing the Bulgarian church as an independentinstitution, and in building churches throughout the country. In 886 hegave asylum to Clement, Nahum, and Angelarius, the disciples of Cyril andMethodius, missionaries to the Slavs, who had been driven out of Moravia.With Boris' active assistance and material support, these disciplesfounded centres of Slavic learning at Pliska, Preslav, and Ohrid. As aresult of the intensive work of the Slav scholars, the Slavic languagereplaced Greek in church services and in literary life and became thecountry's official language. In 889 Boris I, whose faith apparently was deep and genuine, abdicatedand became a monk, but he retained the right to take an active part inthe government of the state. Boris' eldest son and heir, Vladimir(889-893), abandoned his father's policy and became the instrument of apagan reaction and a leader of the opponents of Slavic letters andliterature. Boris then returned to active politics. With the aid of loyalboyars and the army, Boris drove his son from the throne. Vladimir wasblinded, unfitting him for rule, and was replaced by Boris' third son,who ruled as Symeon the Great (893-927). Boris afterward retired to hismonastery, making generous grants to the Bulgarian Church and patronizingSlav scholarship. He was canonized by the Orthodox Church, and his feastis celebrated on May 15 (new style; May 2, old style). [EncyclopaediaBritannica CD '97, BORIS I] He was born before 852. He was the son of Pressian Khan of the Bulgars. Saint Boris Michael I, Khan of Bulgaria died in 907. He died on 2 May 907.
