*thumbsup* :) The conversion of the Slavs was extremely peaceful. It was at that time my patron saint Cyril, minister to the Slavs, and his companion Methodius invented the Cyrillic alphabet and made Church Slavonic possible. This also allowed the Slavs to become literate generally and in Bible scriptures particularly. This ministry, after a few generations, made possible the Golden Age of Russian Literature(Pushkin, etc) and general enlightenment of all Slavic people. :cool: There were no decrees, AFAIK.
