Roman Catholics in Ukraine, how long
« on: March 15, 2012, 07:01:55 PM »
Is it a fair statement to say that Christians in communion with the Pope of Rome have been in Ukraine since before the time of Saints Cyril and Methodius?

In reading the below articles it seems that the answer is, "Yes", but I wanted to get some Orthodox perspective on this.

History of Christianity in Ukraine
Cyril and Methodius
Union of Brest

Thanks.

Christianity in the current territory of Ukraine has been since the ancient times. Rome was Orthodox then. The answer is yes.
