It's February 14th!

AND YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS: AND TODAY WE CELEBRATE... THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 14 Saints Cyril and Methodius (Aleteia). Cyril and Methodius Day is actually celebrated on three different days in Eastern Europe. This is the first one for 2019. We celebrate Cyril and Methodius here at PaleoJudaica for their invention of the Slavonic alphabet, which let to the preservation of some fascinating Old Testament pseudepigrapha (etc.) in Old Church Slavonic which otherwise would mostly have been lost.

And yes, I hope you all have a nice Valentine's Day too.
