This is a true thing. Dark age Irish missionaries _did_ get to Russia. I believe the "caol le caol agus leathan le leathan" spelling rule came later though. And then of course St. Cyrill provided a better alphabet for the Russian language. If the 'white martyrs' had introduced the latin alphabet to the Russians (I bet they did), then, the Russians knew a better thing when they saw it provided by St. Cyrill. -Duke
