Does anyone know the origin and author(s) of the Standard Antiochian Red service book (not the little red prayer book, but the service book)? It is copyrighted 1971. One of the things that is noted is that it has abridged marriage and baptismal rites (as compared to standard Greek/arabic texts). The funeral service is abridged (as most jurisdictions do) in a unique way as well. I was once told it was base upon an Arabic Little Euchologion, others say Fr. Stephen Upston (sp)? Anyone with knowledge here???
