Liturgy in transliterated Slavonic
« on: January 15, 2011, 08:36:09 PM »
Can anyone direct me to a version of the Divine Liturgy in Church Slavonic transliterated into English? I have an English and Church Slavonic version, but am still learning the letters, and so an English transliteration would be most helpful. Online or in hard copy.

Thanks in advance!

Guess I could have looked a bit harder before posting. I found this one, and it should do the trick...  :P

Although... if anyone knows of one that also has the English alongside the transliterated Slavonic, I'd really appreciate it.

I'd recommend you and others not use those too much, because it will only serve to lengthen the time it takes you to learn to read Slavonic. Maybe a temporary crutch.

I learned Greek by getting a text of the liturgy, getting a CD of the liturgy, and listening over and over again while following along, until I could read the letters (plus referencing charts in a grammar book, etc.)

Yes, I agree. Just a temporary crutch! Thank you, Fr. Anastasios.

The Chlib Dusi, a small prayer book, does have the transliterated Slavonic in it, but it's better for daily prayers. Good luck with whatever you pick.   :)
