Katharina Bracht presents the notion of perfection as central to the anthropology of Methodius of Olympus. She analyses the structure of his anthropology, paying special attention to the influence of the philosophical and theological background on Methodius' thought. Finally she considers the implications of the obtained results for the longstanding controversy on Methodius' episcopacy. The investigation is based both on Methodius' writings transmitted in Greek and on the not readily accessible Old Slavonic translation, thus for the first time in almost 100 years taking into account the complete corpus of Methodius' preserved writings.
