The Unabbreviated Horologion / Book of Hours.

One of the most important service books of the Orthodox Church, now available in a well-bound large print format. In traditional English using the Psalter as translated by Holy Transfiguration Monastery. This book has the fixed texts for all the daily services of the Orthodox Church, including the inter-hours. Clear rubrics explain how the form of the services vary between Sundays and weekdays, fasting seasons etc. This new 1997 edition also includes extracts from the Menaion, Triodion and Pentecostarion.

“This Horologion is more a compilation than anything else, but the additions of the many rubrics and directives is entirely my idea, along with minor translations and revisions of other translations. The Psalter with Sequence, i.e., The Great Horologion or Great Book of the Hours, the last Pre-revolution Synodal edition as published in Kiev, and as published by Holy Trinity Monastery in 1964, is the text appearing in this English edition of the Horologion, which I have entitled ‘unabbreviated’ because I have not abbreviated all the many things that are normally abbreviated in all Greek and Slavonic service books.”
