Summary/Abstract: In this text the author explores the transformations of the cult of St. Kliment Okhridski by focusing on less known chapter of local veneration of the saint. The church “St. Spas” (“Ascencion of Jesus”) in the village of Dren, near city of Radomir (Bulgaria), was consecrated with a piece of relic from St. Kliment in 1949. Mihail Hr. Popov, the priest of the church in Dren, writes “Annals of the Church”, where he tells this story. The article offers a description of the church and a short biography of the priest. These data are presented in the context of articles from different newspapers, as well as scholarly studies and works about St. Kliment.
