THE LIFE OF ST. METHODIUS, EQUAL-TO-APOSTLES, ARCHBISHOP OF MORAVIA, IN OLD RUSSIAN PROLOGUES
This article deals with the two versions of the Life of St. Methodius, archbishop of Moravia, included in the Prologue. St. Cyril and Methodius are the most significant figures in the Slavic culture. That's why the creation of the new versions of their Lives reflects the political trends of the epoch (for example the legend about the mission of Saint Brothers to Bulgaria).
The author examines which of the two versions is original and determines the time of their emergence.
