Hollywood doesn’t make many big-budget films of holy people, and when they do, it’s usually a dog’s breakfast. However, an exciting docudrama project from the Czech Republic in 2013 has resulted in an excellent series on the lives and historical importance of the two brothers, Saints Cyril and Methodius.
Saints Cyril and Methodius were two Byzantine brothers born in the 9th century who became prominent Christian missionaries. Their mission influenced the cultural development of all Slavic nations, for which they are called the Apostles of the Slavs. In order to commemorate the 1150th anniversary of their legacy, a 4-part docudrama was created tracing their lives and work.
This project, established in the Czech Republic, involved cooperation between the Catholic and Orthodox Churches, as these saints established what would be the foundation and future development of Czech and Slavic culture and education.
The series follows Cyril and Methodius, two Byzantine Greek brothers born in the 9th century. They became missionaries of Christianity and influenced the cultural development of the Great Moravian territory.
