Petur Dunov (1864—1944), also known as the Master, was a Bulgarian philosopher and spiritual teacher who developed a form of Esoteric Christianity known as the White Brotherhood. Dunov attended secondary school in Varna and the American Methodist School of Theology and Science in Svishtov, from which he graduated in 1886. He worked as a primary school teacher for a year before leaving for the United States, where he studied theology at Drew Theological Seminary in Madison, New Jersey. After graduating from Drew he enrolled in the Boston University School of Theology and obtained his degree in June 1893 with a thesis on "The Migration of the Germanic Tribes and Their Christianisation". He was a regular student at the School of Medicine of Boston University for a year, before returning to Bulgaria in 1895. Upon his return to Bulgaria Dunov published "Science and Education", in which he analyzed the development of mankind into a new culture, which he thought was bound to take place during the forthcoming century. After the turn of the century, Dunoff began to travel throughout Bulgaria for several years, giving talks and undertaking phrenological research. He met with a wide circle of people. In 1900 he held the first annual convention of what later became a spiritual community that lasted until the end of Dunov's life.
