Biography of saint Rastislav


Whenever we draw our spiritual insight towards the beginning of Christianity of the Slavic nations we see the holy and noble personality of the Great Moravian Prince Saint Rastislav. He was a monarch who laid a solid foundation of our spiritual life and our culture. Saint Rastislav took over the government around the year 846 after Mojmir. At that time was about it was necessary to decide whether the cultural centre would be tied to the Slavs, Rome or Constantinople. Decisive was that the Greek-Slavic East counterbalance to the Roman-Germanic West. Prince Rastislav decided for the East, therefore, he sent his envoys to Byzantium, from whence were sent to Moravia those missionaries who would preach in the vernacular the word of God to Slavic nations. Ss. Cyril and Methodius were experts on Slavic mentality, because they had close contacts with the Slavs living in the northern part of Byzantium. Due their work of these brothers , the Slavs ranked among the nations of the then cultural world. St. Rastislav was betrayed by Svatopluk, who ruled in Nitra who captured him and delivered him to the Germans. Sv. Rastislav was sentenced to death. At first his eyes were burned and then he left in agony in prison. Godly prince, Saint Rastislav died for his nation and Christ's truth as a martyr around 870. The Orthodox Church canonised Saint Rastislav at 29.10.1994.
