cyril and methodius of thessalonica: the acculturation of the slavs
At the height of the tumultuous developments taking place in Central and Eastern Europe in the ninth century, two Greek missionaries from Thesalonica came to the fore. Their work of acculturation among the Slavs, had a far-reaching and lasting changes upon European life. This book looks back over the life and work of these two outstanding figures and analyzes their ecclesiastical and cultural mission. Their presence in the Crimea was closely bound up with several aspects of Byzantium`s ecclesiastical policy and programs of acculturation, and also with the Russians` first encounter with Christianity.
