Orthros

  • Services for Holy Week and Easter

    Translated by Fr. Contos and edited by Fr. Kezios, this text contains all of the services celebrated during Holy Week. The Greek text is a careful reconstruction (not scanned copy) of the authorized version, free of elision or back-referencing. The English text is a fresh translation, avoiding the often tortuous Greek syntax. This version is remarkable both for its fidelity to the meaning of the original and for its compelling clarity.  In a new, thin, light pocket book edition, it is almost half the weight of other editions yet the PRINT IS LARGER

  • Orthros for Feast Days Volume 1

    The Holy Office of Orthros when celebrated on a weekday in commemoration of a Saint or major feast day never changes.  Year after year it remains the same.  Thus, this, the first of a six-volume series will be a permanent edition for yearly use.  Therefore, it is being published in a hard cover edition, cloth bound, 8-1/2 by 11 inches with large, easy to read print in Greek with parallel English translations.  It is in the same format as the more familiar, Orthros published semi-annually. Volume I contains all the Services for the Feast Days on which we celebrate the Divine Liturgy (as mandated by our Archdiocese) for the months of January, February and March, twelve in all.

  • Orthros for Feast Days Volumes 2 and 3

    All the Orthros services from April to June for the Weekday celebration of Feast Days.  Contained are all of the dramatic changes in rubrics and hymnology mandated during the Easter to Pentecost liturgical cycle; full and complete for every year from now until the year 2025.  This makes it unique because, though needed, it has never before been attempted.  This represents, literally, thousands of hours of work researching and calculating all the necessary changes.  There are included, for example, eight (8) different ways to celebrate Orthros for the Feast Day of Saints Constantine and Helen.  Other services included are:  Saturday of the Souls (for both Meat Fare and Pentecost); Lazarus Saturday; Ascension; and Mid-Pentecost.

  • Orthros for Sunday Vol B

    A voluminous liturgical text (in large print) of the Matins Service as celebrated in the Greek Orthodox Church for each Sunday of the year, published semi-annually (Volume A entails the months of January through June; Volume B July through December). This work provides an opportunity for the Orthodox worshiper to follow and understand in both Greek and English (parallel columns) this most magnificent service. For Christians of other traditions, it provides a deeper insight into the thought, doctrine and worship of the ancient, universal Church, through hymns which date back as early as the first century. Translated and compiled by the Rev. Spencer T. Kezios, “Orthros” will undoubtedly find its place among the classics of 20th century Greek Orthodox translations.
