This article presents the work of Georgi Sava Rakovski (1821–1867), one of the most outstanding, well-rounded, and interesting personalities of the Bulgarian Revival. It examines his ideas about the origin and specific character of the Bulgarian people and folklore as a resource for the beginnings of ethnic history. Special attention is dedicated to the role of this man of letters in the establishment of folklore studies in Bulgaria and his contribution to shaping standard Bulgarian and introducing comparative studies in Bulgaria.
