The Order of Divine Services according to the usage of the Russian Orthodox Church

   
Second Edition, Revised 2009

by Peter Fekula and Matthew Williams

“It is with much pleasure that we finally bring to you a further revision edition of this handbook, initially published as The Ordinary Order of Orthodox Divine Services. As the content of this edition has been expanded far beyond the ‘ordinary’ and since divine services are Orthodox, we have amended the title accordingly. The body of this edition is sunstantially unchanged from the 1997 edition. The appendices previously published in the 2004 Liturgical Calendar have been inserted in the appropriate section[...].”
