Liturgical variants?
« on: September 23, 2009, 04:23:23 PM »
Greetings all!

I am curious as to what local variants there are to the Divine Liturgy. Especially, in variants in southern Italy (namely Sicily). I understand that for a very long time Sicily was Orthodox (Byzantine) and there is now a slow, but steady revival in Italo-Byzantine culture in southern Italy. Were there in the past ways that the Sicilians celebrated the Divine Liturgy? I am very interested in this because I am Sicilian. :P  ;D

I would certainly appreciate any and all help!

In Christ,
"I will pour out my prayer unto the Lord, and to Him will I proclaim my grief; for with evils my soul is filled, and my life unto hades hath drawn nigh, and like Jonah I will pray: From corruption raise me up, O God." -Ode VI, Irmos of the Supplicatory Canon to the Theotokos
