    Ottoman Albania

    This is from an account of Ottoman Albania, written by Antonio Bruni in 1596, I took some parts out, I will add more later:

    The Albanians live in part of Epirus,
    Dardania, Macedonia and a corner of Illyria;
    those who are on the Dalmatian side are Roman Catholics, while
    the others, from Durres southwards, are all Orthodox. The language
    of these people is very different from Slav and Greek. It may be Alan
    or Gothic, brought there by Alaric, who stayed a long time
    in Epirus when he was attacking the Roman Empire;
    or indeed it may be the ancient language of the Macedonians-which seems
    more likely, as it does not resemble the Slav language, which was perhaps the Goths
    own language.
