FORMOVANIE BYZANTSKO‑SLOVANSKEJ KONFESIONÁLNEJ IDENTITY V STARŠOM OBDOBÍ SLOVENSKÝCH KULTÚRNYCH DEJÍN
(Formation of the Byzantine‑Slavic Confessional Identity in an Earlier Period of the Slovak Cultural History)
Abstract: Cyrillic manuscripts show evidence of the Byzantine‑Slavic cultural and traditional formation and development in Slovakia, as well as in the milieu of Slovak ethnic society. From a linguistic point of view and based on the provenance of the described realia, they are an integral part of the Slovak national culture. Mentioned manuscripts thereby represent an important and integral part of the confessional identity of inhabitants of the region, although after the fall of Great Moravia, Latin cultural tradition eventually prevailed in the middle Danube region.
