KULTÚRNO-HISTORICKÝ ROZMER CYRILO-METODSKEJ MISIE V KONTEXTE NESKORŠÍCH CIRKEVNÝCH DIEL NA SLOVENSKU (RITUALE STRIGONIENSE, RITUALE SLOVACCHIÆ A CANTUS CATHOLICI)
[The Cultural-Historical Dimension of the Cyril and Methodius Mission in the Context of Later Ecclesiastical Works in Slovakia (Rituale Strigoniense, Rituale Slovacchiæ and Cantus Catholici)]
Abstract: The Cyril and Methodius mission, which took place on the territory of Great Moravia, was not only of political but also of ecclesiastical significance, especially because of the work done by the Thessalonian brothers in the field of language and liturgy. Their translations of liturgical books into Old Slavonic brought with them important milestones that played a significant role in later centuries. In the period of recatholization, the Archbishop of Esztergom, Peter Pázmaň, was instrumental in the publication of the Esztergom Ritual, which brought with it a language that was understandable to the people and to the celebration of the liturgy, and this was preserved in later editions, even down to the publication of the Rituale Slovacchiæ. The publication of the Slovak Catholic hymnal Cantus Catholici was also an important act of encouragement to the Slovak people in the religious and national spheres, and these facts touch on an environment that goes beyond the ecclesiastical sphere, in the context of society and culture as a whole.
