It reads "The Akathist for the Dormition of the Theotokos." The image on the other page seems to match it.

The Kilchers live just down the road. Story goes, Jewel Kilcher was sweet on a local Old Believer boy but that that love went unrequited. When she got famous, she used to send him invitations to every one of her concerts though he never went. Isn't that just sad?

Its an Akathist...

published by the Kiev Lavra


and that's where my Slavonic deciphering skills end...


Based on the picture, its to the Theotokos....

Here's hoping my defense at the dread judgement seat of Christ doesn't turn out to be 'well I argued about what day it was.....a lot'

To be more precise, the title is "The Akathist for the Dormition of the All-Holy Theotokos." I was in a hurry earlier, so my apologies.

I've never been very good at reading Slavonic numerals but I do believe it was printed in 1863 by the Kiev Pechersk Lavra.
