Constantine and Methodius were well educated and they could speak several languages. They were deeply religious men, leading strict and ascetic way of life, in accordance with Byzantine teachings and traditions. Although the names of both brothers are mainly connected with liturgy in Old Church Slavonic, their mission was of far greater significance. They both disseminated the Byzantine Christian thought by their lifestyle and participation in public life. The paper provides specification of terms related to Constantine’s definition of philosophy and discusses the importance of practical philosophy in the lives of Constantine and Methodius. Furthermore, it focuses on the explanation of the meaning of the knowledge of truth in Byzantine Patristic context. It also focuses on explanation of meaning of knowledge of God the way Constantine and Methodius viewed this issue via theses of significant thinkers, mainly via theses of Gregory the Theologian, one of the most prominent Byzantine authors of the fourth century.
