Coverdale Psalter in the Russian Church
« on: November 08, 2009, 08:23:03 AM »
Coverdale Comes to the Russian Church

"The Russian Orthodox Psalter" in English (basically the Coverdale Psalter) has been approved and authorized by the  Synodal Translation Committee of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia (Bishop Jerome of Manhattan, Chairman.)

By giving its blessing to this new adaptation, the Synod of Bishops of the Russian Orthodox Church Abroad is not endorsing this new psalter over the well-established Boston version, but letting the Church's membership know that this new adaptation is also approved for use in public worship and accurately reflects the Greek and Slavonic received texts.
