Summary/Abstract: The author summarizes the results of her research on the cult of St Dasius in the medieval town of Dorostol (ancient Durostorum, present-day Silistra in Northeastern Bulgaria) and the region of Lower Danube. She suggests that his cult was reflected in the popular culture rituals of kukeri masquerades in the present-day region of Silistra. Further, the author discusses the results of the study by other scholars of the vita of the saint, relics of whom were donated to the Bulgarian Church during the visit of Pope John Paul II to Bulgaria in 2002.
