Slavs marking Slavonic Literature and Culture Day

Today the Slavonic world that uses the Cyrillic alphabet is marking the Slavonic Literature and Culture Day. Belarus has been celebrating the Day of Slavonic Written Language and Culture since 1986.

On 24 May the Orthodox Church commemorates Saints Methodius and Cyril, enlighteners and missionaries of Christianity.

The two brothers contributed to the formation of the literature language of our ancestors, asserted such distinguished features of the Slavs as dedication, sympathy and justice.

After their deaths, their pupils continued their missionary work among other Slavs, completed the translation of the Scripture and many service books from Greek to Old Slavonic. Both brothers are venerated in the Orthodox Church as saints with the title of “equal-to-apostles”.

Saints Cyril and Methodius left us the testament of concord and brotherhood, an idea of unity and reciprocity.

Belarus is also a mother land to many talented enlighteners: Euphrosyne of Polotsk, Kirill of Turov, Francisk Skarina and many more. Over 7,000 books in Cyrillic were published in Belarus in the 14th-19th centuries.
