ST.CLEMENT OF OHRID DAY CELEBRATIONS



Culture.

For a second year in a row, the Day of St. Kliment Ohirdski (St. Clement of Ohrid), December 8, is celebrated as a national holiday in Macedonia. Dec. 8 aims to celebrate the life of the first original author and educator, the first bishop and founder of the Ohrid Literary School. Together with Naum of Ohrid, he is the most renowned disciple of Ss. Cyril and Methodius and is considered to be their most loyal follower.

Observing the holiday, a St. Clement of Ohrid award, the highest recognition for life-long achievements in the field of education, culture, art, health-care, sports and environment, will be presented Monday in the Parliament. On the same day in Ohrid, the city under the patronage of St. Clement of Ohrid, the Museum on Water will be formally opened. In the eve of the holiday, Skopje-based National and University Library, which bears his name, organised on Friday a second scientific meeting "The Literary Works of St. Clement of Ohrid".

Clement of Ohrid (835-916) is one of Macedonia's greatest educators and the first writer in the history of Macedonian literature. His works played a significant role in the development of the Macedonian culture and literacy. Especially important was the Ohrid Literary School, which he founded and had about 3.500 students. He is also credited for being one of the founders of the Cyrillic alphabet.

Nowadays, many churches, institutions, schools and associations are bearing his name. St.Clement is the patron saint of the city of Ohrid.

Back to the christian turkish think tank my settler friend. We have chosen our name, the name that we've always had, even before you christian turkish settlers thought it was fashionable to be called Macedonians.

My regards to your ancestral lands of Anatolia.

Da zhivee Makedonija!
