Having into consideration that the Balkan was under the authority of the Ottoman Empire for centuries, the interest for Ottoman-Turkish diplomatics is highly developed in the Balkan countries. Therefore, the number of translated Ottoman documents was increasing. Little errors can be noticed in the translations, which is quite normal and the translator has given explanation about them.
Diplomatics, as a science, has developed in the eighties of the XVII century. The founder of this interesting, but quite procedural scientific discipline, which requires a lot of patience and attention, is the Frenchman Jean Mabillon. The word “diplomatics” comes from the Greek word “diploma” which means “something folded two-times”, “folded piece of paper”.
The reason for the appearance of this discipline is the falsifying of documents which happened then. Hence, some of the phases in diplomatics include determination of original documents and falsifications, but first of all, it deals with the form of the documents. The content of the document is important as well, due to the fact that through analysis of one or the other features, the authenticity of it is established, and its political significance too.
The Registry of Macedonia is one of the richest registries with Ottoman documents in comparison to the other Balkan countries. It takes one of the first places with the well-known edition “Turkish documents on Macedonian history” issued by the Institute of national history (INI).
