Subject: Clitic history - South Slavis imperatives

I am writing a paper comparing clitic placement influenced by mood
in some Australian Aboriginal languages and some European languages.
I am particularly interested in Bulgarian and Macedonian, with enclisis 
to the verb in the latter. I think I have sufficient information
on the current situation but I cannot find historical detail to compare 
the writing on this topic in Medieval Romance & Greek. I would be glad to 
receive any references to this.
