Description

Saint Nahum (a.d. 835-910) was a Macedonian and a fellow disciple of SS Cyril and Methodius with SS Clement, Gorazd, Sava, and Angelarius.   He worked with these saints in Moravia until a.d. 862, when they left because of fierce persecution from the German soldiers under the orders of the German bishop Vihing.  They were stripped naked, and threatened with swords and lances, and all their sacred books in the new Slavonic alphabet burned.

The five followers of SS Cyril and Methodius mentioned above, after being driven out of Moravia, passed through Pliska, Bulgaria, where they were warmly welcomed by the Bulgarian King Michael-Boris.  Saint Nahum and Saint Clement were especially asked to help educate the Bulgarian and Slavic people with their wisdom.  Saint Clement was sent to Ochrid, and Saint Nahum stayed in Pliska, where they both did remarkable educational work.  Later, Saint Nahum went to Ochrid to help Saint Clement when he was made a bishop in a.d. 893.  Saint Nahum built his monastery on Lake Ochrid’s southern shore.  He was a great miracle-worker, a leader of monks, and illumined teacher, joyously going to God in a.d. 910.
