Religious History

Saint Methodius dies. With his brother Cyril, Methodius worked to convert the people of Moravia to Christianity.

The two brothers were sent to Moravia by Photius, the Patriarch of Constantinople. Prince Rostilav had decreed in 863 that any preaching had to be done in the language of the people. As a result, Cyril and Methodius developed the first usable alphabet for the Slavic tongue — thus, the Cyrillic alphabet.
