The Great Synaxaristes of the Orthodox Church: September

   
Translated from the Greek

A volume of The Great Synaxaristes of the Orthodox Church

“The holy Church of God celebrates today the Indiction. The Hebrews of old observed March as the beginning of the year, but for the Romans the beginning of the year was September, even though they previously observed the 1st of January. According to Archbishop Gregory of Taormina, when Julius Caesar defeated Anthony it was the month of September. Being mede exceedingly proud by thus triumph, he transferred the Roman custom of celebrating January to September. ‘Indiction’ is a Latin word meaning ‘to proclaim,’ which in The Great Synaxaristes is given the signification of orismos, that is, a decree or edict, which more specifically was a tax imposed by the emperor in order to meet the needs of the empire.”
—“On the 1st of September, the holy Church commemorates the Beginning of the Indiction, that is, the New Year.”
