Saints Cyril and Methodius MACEDONIAN (КИРИЛ И МЕТОДИЈ) (Greek: Κύριλλος καὶ Μεθόδιος, Old Church Slavonic Mcedonian: Кѷриллъ и Меѳодїи[more]) were Byzantine Greek brothers born in Thessalonica in the 9th century who became Christian missionaries among the Slavic peoples of the Great Moravia and Pannonia.[3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10] Through their work they influenced the cultural development of all Slavs, for which they received the title "Apostles to the Slavs". They are credited with devising the Glagolitic alphabet, the first alphabet used to transcribe Old Church Slavonic.[11] After their deaths, their pupils continued their missionary work among other Slavs. Both brothers are venerated in the Orthodox Church as saints with the title of "equal-to-apostles". In 1880, Pope Leo XIII introduced their feast into the calendar of the Roman Catholic Church. In 1980, Pope John Paul II declared them co-patron saints of Europe, together with Benedict of Nursia.[12]

Ilce, баво тема со Кирил и Методиј. Пред сè, ми се допаѓа вашето објаснување. Па затоа треба да биде. Кога јас фотографија, ми се чини секогаш зависи од гледачот во сцена. Тоа е она што тој мисли и гледа, или она што ќе го видите. Ubavo tema so Kiril i MetodiJ. Pred sè , mi se dopaǵa vašeto obJasnuvanje . Pa zatoa treba da bide. Koga Jas fotografiJa, mi se čini sekogaš zavisi od gledačot vo scena. Toa e ona što toJ misli i gleda , ili ona što ḱe go vidite.
