Summary/Abstract: The article examines an episode from the life of the newly elected Metropolitan of Nevrokop Boris. The incident, relayed in a later letter by Archimandrite Methodius in his position as an eyewitness, is insignificant at first glance, but in fact represents Boris’s first meeting with his future physical killer. The letter is probably the earliest evidence containing a proposal for the canonization of the Bulgarian metropolitan killed during the first years of the communist regime.
