Product Description

The Synaxarion, or liturgical typikon, of the monastery of Theotokos Evergetis, founded in 1049 just outside the walls of Constantinople, is probably the largest and most detailed guide to medieval monastic liturgical practice to have come down to us. So it is an ideal resource with which to begin, or continue, a study of Greek Orthodox liturgy. This volume, one of a set of four, contains a new, complete text and the first English translation (on facing pages) of the prescriptions for the months of September to February from the fixed cycle. The remainder of the fixed cycle, together with the movable cycle, appears in the second volume of text and translation. There is also a third volume, containing detailed indexes of all troparia, readings, melodies etc. A commentary volume is in preparation. All these volumes are part of the series Belfast Byzantine Texts and Translations and products of the British Academy funded Evergetis Project at Queen's University Belfast, where the editor and translator, Robert Jordan, was the Assistant Director of the Institute of Byzantine Studies. In his retirement he remains actively involved in the Evergetis Project.
