Abagar Bulgarian Catholic Literary Archive
Although the Bulgarian communist regime was hostile to the Catholic Church, the center was visited by Bulgarian historians - active members of the Bulgarian Communist Party (Aksinia Dzhurova, Bozhidar Dimitrov, etc.).
The archive of the Abagar cultural center was moved from Rome to Bulgaria in 1997. The Abagar Foundation, established at that time, took care of the archive. A year after the death of Prof. Eldarov in 2011 a woman in Sofia was arrested for illegally selling objects from the archive; the ultimate fate of the archive material is, unfortunately, unknown.
