The Complete Book of Orthodoxy: A Comprehensive Encyclopedia and Glossary of Orthodox Terms, History, Theology, and Facts

   
Compiled by George W. Grube

Abba-an Aramaic term used in addressing God. It was used by Jesus in referring to the Father. In ascetical literature it is also a term of endearment used in reference to spiritual fathers. Abbess (Gk. hegoumena)-the superior of a woman’s monastery. Abbot (Gk. hegoumenos)-the head of a monastery. His office includes maintaining the authentic spiritual life of the monastery, enforcing the traditions of the Church and property management. His rank is usually an archimandrite or a hegumen (igoumen). He has general authority/jurisdiction in his community. Abduration-a formal statement by which one renounces his/her former beliefs when entering the Orthodox Church. It is the renunciation of previous heresies or schisms. It is necessary before Baptism or Chrismation in the Church and proclaimed at the profession of faith.”
