The documents bear witness to the life and activities of the leading Renaissance figures, and reflect key political and social events in the history of Bulgarians in the 18th and 19th centuries. They are of different content and time of creation within the Renaissance period. The focus is on the stages of the struggle of the Bulgarian people for independence - the cultural and educational movement, the struggle for an independent church and the national liberation movement.
