No event in the medieval history of the Balkans has attracted more interest and investigation than the Bogomil spiritual movement. And one of the most sought after artifacts is the mysterious Secret Book which is said to contain an authentic outline of the Bogomil doctrine. The original of the Secret Book has not been found yet. A record from the Carcasson memoirs indicates the possibility that the Secret Book of the Bogomils originates from the Balkan region. Because of the Secret Book, a number of scientists and investigators will meet in Macedonia to make an attempt to find and resolve the ancient mystery. Step by step, information unfolds to perhaps solve the ancient riddle.
