Old Church Slavonic, or Old Church Slavic (словѣ́ньскъ ѩꙁꙑ́къ, transliterated as slověnĭskŭ językŭ) is an Eastern South Slavic dialect of the Slavic languages group (which ultimately belongs to the Indo-European language family). It was initially written in the Glagolitic script invented by the 9th-century Byzantine missionaries Saints Cyril and Methodius, his brother, and replaced by the Early Cyrillic alphabet (also called classical Cyrillic or paleo-Cyrillic) during the First Bulgarian Empire during the late 9th century.
Transliteration system: ALA-LC

This label includes the initials of the American Library Association (ALA) and the Library of Congress (LC). This system is used to represent bibliographic names by North American libraries and the British Library, as well as in publications throughout the English-speaking world.
