Hello all! I am currently doing matins/vespers as readers services and need the material that isn't found in the service itself. I am not completely sure of the names of these books, but I am poor, and would love them for free if possible. I need all the books to do a proper Vespers, and Matins. I also should add that I would like them to be Eastern Orthodox. God Bless, and Thanks.

I forgot to add that I also need the liturgical resources to do a reader's liturgy as well, if possible free, and online. Thanks and God Bless.

There is no such thing as a reader's liturgy.

Since your profile says you are Antiochian I would suggest visiting this site...

http://www.dowama.org/node/26 which has readers services using the standard styles and text of the Antiochian Archdiocese.

Yes there is. It is called Typika. I know that it is not specifically Liturgy. Perhaps, my leaving out the specific name, is what has caused the confusion. Thank you for the link.

You can find Typika here:

I have looked through the link that you provided, and now I know that I need a Liturgikon, the Menaion, the Octoechos, and the Triodion. Is there any way to find all of these online, for free? I would love it that were possible. Thanks, and God Bless.

It is really improper to refer to the Typika as a "Reader Liturgy" since the Liturgy requires both Clergy and Laity to participate.

As for online sources to the additional text you are looking for there are none available fully online that I would recommend.

PFN, there are complete liturgical libraries available online in both Greek and Slavonic, but nothing as complete as this in English, unfortunately. What do you mean by "more in-depth"? Maybe I could help.
No longer posting here. Anyone is welcome to PM me or email me at the address in my profile.

If you have these it would be great. However, Schultz has provided me with some great resources including the books I listed above. But, if anyone has more, I would gladly take them. Thanks for all the replies, and help.
