MACEDONIAN DELEGATION TO HONOUR SAINT CYRIL IN ROME


Culture.

A Macedonian delegation is staying in Rome to attend the traditional ceremony, 'Macedonia Honours Saint Cyril'.

On Thursday, Pope Benedict XVI will stage an audience for the Macedonian delegation, headed by Parliament President Ljubisha Georgievski.

Georgievski is scheduled to have a tête-à-tête meeting with the Pontiff.

Macedonian delegation, which includes Culture Minister Arifkemet Xhemaili, will place a wreath at the tomb of the scholar Saint Clement at the San Clemente basilica on the 24th of May. The Head of the Macedonian Orthodox Church, Archbishop Stefan, will hold a prayer service.

The observance of the traditional event "Macedonia Honors Saint Cyril" began in Rome on Tuesday evening with the exhibition "Macedonians Bronzes", prepared by Macedonia Museum at Palazzo della Cancelleria Gallery.

Parliament President Georgievski will meet his Italian counterpart Fausto Bertinotti.

MD: Nice initiative! Several bronze pieces which were found in Macedonia are exhibited in Rome and the event includes a promotion of the Italian-language monography entitled Byzantine Macedonia, written by Sasho Korunovski and Elizabeta Dimitrova.
