This outstanding historical figure who died 1151 years ago on February 14, 869, has become known in history under a different name, often known without the eloquent epithet of ‘philosopher’, but with the added religious dignity of St. Cyril. He is usually compared to his elder brother St. Methodius, and they are nowadays commonly referred to as the Apostles to the Slavs, although today hardly anyone knows that their original names were Konstantinos and Michael. There is extensive literature on the importance of these Thessalonian brothers for the creation of the Slavic alphabet (Glagolitic) and the translation from Greek of the liturgical offices. The literature includes mainly religious, philological and historical perspectives, but there are only few philosophical and historiosophical considerations. In respect of the mentioned anniversary of Constantine – St. Cyril, we will reflect on his philosophical education, views and discussions with various interlocutors.
