St Clement of Ohrid is reported to have written the historiography of both Cyril and Methodius, his fellow Macedonian educators. Here is the opening line for his 'Life of Constantine (Cyril)', transliterated into the modern Macedonian alphabet:

Пaмeт и житиje блaжeнaгo yчитeлja нaшeгo Kocтaнтинa филocoфa, пpвaгo нacтaвникa cлoвeнcкy jeзикy.
The rough english translation is: Memory and life of our blessed educator Constantine the philosopher, first teacher of the slavonic language.

Here is the famous line from the 'Life of Methodius' with respect to Michael III and his urging of the Macedonian brothers to educate the Moravians:

.........ви бo jecтa Ceлyнeнинa, дa Ceлyнeнe вcи чиcтo cлoвeнcки бeceдyjyt.
The rough english translation is: .....you are both from Salonika, and all Salonikans speak pure slavonic.
