Cyrillic – the third official alphabet in the European Union, along with the Latin and Greek alphabets.
On 24 May, the Bulgarian people celebrate the great cause of the holy brothers St. Cyril and St. Methodius, The Cyrillic alphabet, education, and culture.
In 1980 with Apostolic Letter, Pope John Paul II declared Saints Cyril and Methodius co-patron saints of Europe. According to the Pope, they are a bridge between East and West, who contributed significantly to the cultural growth of the continent and the education of generations of Europeans.
Today, the Cyrillic alphabet is used by about 300 million people in countries in Eastern Europe and North and Central Asia.
After the accession of Bulgaria in 2007, the Cyrillic alphabet is the third official alphabet in the European Union, along with the Latin and Greek alphabets.
For more than eleven centuries the Cyrillic alphabet has been a bridge between people, cultures, and nations.
The Cyrillic alphabet was developed at the Bulgarian Preslav Literary School at the end of the 9th century. There are several hypotheses about how exactly it has been created, but the most advocated one is that the Glagolitic alphabet was modified by Cyril and Methodius’s students, Kliment of Ohrid and Naum of Preslav after they arrived in Bulgaria in 886. Kliment named the new alphabet Cyrillic dedicated to his teacher Cyril.
After that Bulgaria began a linguistic and cultural revolution that made it a major cultural center.
The holiday was celebrated for the first time in Plovdiv in 1851.
