Summary/Abstract: The paper gives a summary of the results of a research into the materials and techniques of the seventeenth century murals in the Church of St George in Veliko Tarnovo, subject of an MA thesis defended at the Nicholas Copernicus university of Torun, Poland in 1971. Archival information about the overall architectural conservation and the conservation of the church decoration in the period between 1963 and 1975 complement the given data of the analytical methods and interpretation of the painting techniques in the then unexplored site of the Post-Byzantine period. The study and conservation-restoration of the Church of St George is a typical example of how the churches in Veliko Tarnovo and the village of Arbanasi damaged in the earthquake of 1913 have been conserved as well as of the government policy until the late 1980s of safeguarding the religious sites of cultural significance being at the same time a document of a stage in the de- velopment of the conservation science and practices in Bulgaria.
