  Saint Methodius - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Saint Methodius (Greek: Άγιος Μεθόδιος) was a Byzantine bishop of Great Moravia ("Moravia") (born Thessaloniki, Byzantine Empire (today Greece), 826; he died in the (unknown) capital of Great Moravia, April 6, 885).
Saint Methodius was the main translator of the Bible into Old Church Slavonic (see also Slavic languages) using the Glagolitic alphabet created by his brother and collaborator Saint Cyril.
Methodius seems to have disregarded, wholly or in part, the prohibition of the Slavonic liturgy; and when Frankish clerics again found their way into the country, and the archbishop's strictness had displeased the licentious Svatopluk, this was made a cause of complaint against him at Rome, coupled with charges regarding the Filioque.
