Abstracts The Roman Curia and the mission of Konstantin-Cyril and Methodius
Former Historical Works (Lapôtre, Dvornik, Dujčev) have carefully investigated the politics of the Roman Curia towards the Slavs in the ninth century. The interest of the Roman Curia is believed to have been directed primarily towards Bulgaria which at the time vacillated between Byzantium and Rome. The Roman Curia tried to strenghten its jurisdiction over Bulgaria and consequently endevoured not to lose this important but unstable area.
From the period of the Slavic mission of the Holy Brothers many original historical documents have been preserved: the lives (Žitja, Vitae) of the both brothers, lettres of the pope to German bishop and kings, lettres to Slavic princes etc. A fundamental change in the politics of the Roman Curia towards Bulgaria as well as towards the Slavs in general occured between 870 and 885, i. e. in the period from the time of the arrival of the Holy Brothers in Rome to the time of Methodius' death in Moravia. Therefore we have to regard Methodius, who was an able Byzantine lawer and in his youth the archont of the Slavonic provinces, as the author, propagator, initiator and executor of this politics. His death marks the end of such politics of the Curia towards the Slavs. This can clearly be deduced from the sources if we re-read them with enough attention and sensitivity. This fact mirrors the great importance of both brothers and their contribution to the political life of the ninth century Europe.
