I'm envious of your upcoming trip to Bulgaria. I'm no expert on the Bogomils, but below is a link to an informative essay on the Bogomils. And thanks for the kind words about The Fire and the Light. I haven't written anything more about the Cathars, but I have led walking trips across Cathar Country in southwestern France. I hope you have a great time in Bulgaria.
