The purpose of the article is a brief characterisation of the role of the tradition established by Cyril and Methodius in the life of the Slovenian nation in the 19th and 20th centuries. The major promoter of adoration of St. Cyril and Methodius in Slovenia was bishop Anton Martin Slomšek (1800-1862), who in the mid-19th century even established and developed contacts with certain catholically oriented intellectuals in Moravia, primarily with František Sušil. The strong position of the Cyril and Methodius cult has been preserved among Slovenians until the present day.
