What, now you can predict alternate history as if you can know what path things would have taken had the Ottomans not arrived on the scene. You think the Ottoman presence kept the Orthodox Christian faith alive in the Balkans by providing a buffer zone from the Catholic rite.<quoted text>Strahd this is the effect of the truth,remember! say thanks to the Turks,for keeping intact your eastern faith
It might have, but this works both ways. How do you know that the Turkish presence prevented the Serbs overwhelming the northern Balkans. Prior to the arrival of the Turks the Serbs had the strongest Balkan empire.
I am not blaming the Turks except for one thing, for leaving the Bosnian Muslims and you Albanians behind when they finally retreated.
