Pavol Demeš had photos of buildings and areas directly connected to the saints’ lives. The place where they studied in Constantinople is still standing. There is a tiny church in western Slovakia that dates from the time they were working in that region. He also had many photos of places built to commemorate them, not only ones in Slovakia such as the University of Trnava, but also ones in other countries, e.g., a statue at the United Nations, Cyril’s tomb in St. Clement’s Church, Rome.
The Slovak National Museum prepared an exhibit on Cyril and Methodius to complement Demes’ photos. There were three such talks in all, the others being in New York and Pittsburgh. Friends of Slovakia co-sponsored all three along with the Embassy of Slovakia.
