Saint Clement of Ohrid was a medieval Saint from Ohrid, scholar, writer and enlightener of the Slavs. He was the most prominent disciple of Saints Cyril and Methodius and is often associated with the creation of the Glagolitic and Cyrillic alphabets, especially their popularisation among Christianised Slavs. He was the founder of the Ohrid Literary School and is considered as a patron of education and language by most Slavic nations.
The church of St. Climent was built in 893 year on the foundation of the early Christian basilica, and dedicated to St. Panteleimon. It was here where the Ohrid Literary School, a center of Slavonic literary and cultural activity, was found and were educated more than 3,500 disciples. St. Climent was buried in this monastery, in the tomb which was built by his hands.
He is regarded to be the first bishop of the Macedonian Orthodox Church, nowadays the patron saint of the Republic of Macedonia, the city of Ohrid and the Macedonian Orthodox Church.More
