Old Church Slavonic is the first literary and liturgical Slavic language taken over by the 9th century missionaries Saints Cyril and Methodius. It was used by them for translation of the Bible and other church books from Greek. It is important in Eastern Orthodoxy and in most countries of the Slavic peoples.
Cyril and Methodius hailed from Solun and based the Old Church Slavonic on the Slavic dialect used in the Solun region of the Byzantine Empire. Some Bulgarian scholars use to call it Old Bulgarian.
The language was created for the mission of the two apostles to Great Moravia. In Great Moravia, the language was modified according to the dialects used in that territory in some of the documents. Students of the two apostles, who were expelled from Great Moravia in 886, brought the language to present-day Macedonia then. From there the language spread to Bulgaria and to other Eastern European Slavic territories, most notably to Serbia and Russia where it was modified in accordance with the specifics of the Slavic language spoken there.
A redaction of Old Church Slavonic, made much later, is known Church Slavonic, but these terms are often confused.
Church Slavonic maintained a prestige status, particularly in Russia, for many centuries — among Slavs in the East it had a status analogous to that of the Latin language in western Europe, but had the advantage of being less divergent from the vernacular tongues of average parishioners. Some Eastern Orthodox churches, such as the Russian and Serbian churches, still use Church Slavonic in their services and chants. Additionally, several Eastern Rite Catholic churches use Church Slavonic.
Initially Old Church Slavonic language was written with the Glagolitic alphabet, but later it was superseded by the Cyrillic alphabet.
