The Old Church Slavonic variant of Cyrillic script, is a writing system developed around the 9th century, traditionally attributed to Saints Cyril and Methodius, with the purpose of translating religious texts into Slavic languages. It is the ancestral script to the Cyrillic alphabets used in various Slavic languages such as Russian, Bulgarian, and Serbian today. Modern computing systems accommodate this script through Unicode, ensuring its preservation and accessibility in the digital age.
