Cyrillic

Today is Saint Cyril's day. Because Saint Cyril was the greatest missionary to the Slavs, the Cyrillic alphabet is named after him. Cyril died 1143 years ago today.

It is also the day of Saint Methodius, Cyril's brother. So far as I can tell there are no other saints in the current Romish liturgical calendar for today, although there is a petition to have a certain chap reinstated.


For those of you who can bear the sound of my horrid, nasal voice.

  1. Perhaps it's because I'm an antipodean but you do not sound even remotely nasal to me.

  2. Brilliant! Let's organise a Chaucer-effigy-burning fest tonight! With tankards of mead!

  3. Re above comment: Or perhaps ceremoniously frame his effigy with roses and jasmine :–)

  4. No trace of the nasal, Mark, but a vague likeness to a young Daniel Massey, perhaps.

  7. No, not a nasal voice (but I'm an antipodean too, should we worry?) The pretty pink lights in the background look like someone's celebrating Valentine's Day anyway!
