Akathist Translations
« on: April 14, 2007, 03:46:25 PM »
What is your favourite translation of the Akathist to the Theotokos?  Why?

Also, I seem to remember reading the first Ikos of said Akathist in a translation made by the Jordanville monks other than that which is found in the Jordanville Prayer Book.  I have been unable to find it since, & if anyone knows where it is, please share your knowledge.

i love, love, LOVE the translation by hieromonk seraphim dedes  because its using contemporary english & its what we used for great lent @ church  but i am so used to my jordanville that its what i do for compline every night now.  its just a habit, i guess.

i alternate between the jordanville  and the theotokos of the inexhaustible cup , and akathist to jesus christ for a loved one who has fallen asleep.

the latter one is amazing.  the inexhaustible cup i use for several issues like depression & eating disorders.
