Macedonians are described as generous people in the New Testament by Apostol Paul in his second addressing to Corinthians:
“We want you to know, brothers, about the grace of God that has been given among the churches of Macedonia, for in a severe test of affliction, their abundance of joy and their extreme poverty have overflowed in a wealth of generosity on their part.
