Abstract(s)
The character of Constantine and Methodius' presence in Rome was also determined by the policy, ideology and ceremonial system of the Holy See. There are several primary literary sources mainly written in Latin and Slavonic that concern the aforementioned statement. In a way the liturgy of Easter Week or the other stational liturgies in early medieval Rome might have influenced a celebration of the Slavonic liturgy in 867/868. The presentation of the Slavonic liturgy lasted for three days and took place within the Aurelian walls as well as the parts of Rome situated behind this main fortification of the city. The Popes apparently gave audiences to the so called Salonica brothers (Constantine and Methodius) in the most significant sites of the Vatican complex, Lateran palace or in some great churches like the Basilica of St. Mary Major. The aulae, triclinia, atria, and secretaria primarily belonged to the aforementioned sites where the Pope mainly received visitors, officers, proclaimed synod resolutions and addressed the Romans.
