In defence of "illiterate" Slavs, let me remind you that Christianity for
centuries has been destroying identity of many nations. Look for example
the movie Braveheart: in it there is a mention that bagpipes were outlawed
in Scotland of the time of William Wallace. In Russia they collected all
musical instruments and burned them in public places. That was common
practice of that time to destroy everything Slavic, any evidence
of pre-christian history, and
Queen Yekaterina II in her "Notes concerning Russian history"
mentioned that "Slavs before birth of Christ had had many writings" (my
translation may be inacurate).
Even today, after centuries of eradication there is still a lot of evidence
of pre-christian Slavic writings that create contraversy about the origines
of Slavic writing.
This Russian website has a collection of books about researches in that area:
