of the Tarnovo Artistic School Painting of the Tarnovo Artistic School In the 13th and 14th centuries Bulgaria became a thriving cultural centre. The flowering of the Tarnovo school of art was related to the construction of palaces and churches, to literary activity in the royal court and the monasteries, and to the development of handicrafts. Remarkable achievements of this school have been preserved down to this day: the murals of the Boyars' houses in Trapezitsa and Saint Forty Martyrs Church (Holy Forty Martyrs Church, Veliko Tarnovo) in Veliko Tarnovo, the Boyana Church (1259) and the Rock-hewn Churches of Ivanovo. Book illuminations also developed, examples include the ''Manasses Chronicle'', the ''Tetraevangelia of Ivan Alexander'' and the ''Tomich Psalter''. Many relics of Orthodox (Eastern Orthodox Church) martyrs and saints were kept in the numerous churches in the capital Turnovo, which earned the capital the byname "second Constantinople". Most of the architectural monuments from that period include churches, monasteries and fortresses. The Bulgarians usually built small churches with short doors to show humbleness and homage to God.

The Visayans first encountered Western Civilization (western world) when Portuguese (Portugal) explorer Ferdinand Magellan reached the island of Cebu on March 16, 1521. The Visayas eventually became part of the Spanish colony of the Philippines (Spanish Empire) and from then onwards, the history of the Visayans is intertwined with the history the Philippines. With the four centuries of contact with Spain, Mexico and the United States, a common lowland Christian Filipino culture (Hispanic culture in the Philippines) emerged (other Filipino cultures include that of the Muslim Filipinos). The Visayans share this culture with the Ilocanos (Ilocano people), Kapampangans (Kapampangan people), Tagalogs (Tagalog people), and Bicolanos (Bicolano people). These ethnolinguistic groups form the majority of the Filipino population and have embraced Democracy, Christianity, the Latin alphabet, western ways of dressing and education, and English (English language) as a secondary language.
