This is really important.

It demonstrates the stability and the continuity of the Macedonian language, despite the geo-political turmoil of the region over a period spanning five hundred years.

It is also a stick in the eye to those post-structural theorists who argue that there is nothing "distinctive" (their terminology would be 'essential') about the Macedonian ethnic group, or its langauge, and that 'Macedonian' is as much a recent construct as anything else.
