Akathist Hymns
« on: May 25, 2004, 01:49:20 AM »
A few months back, I printed off all the Akathatists I could find online, divided them into categories, and put them into a binder so that now I have a bootlegged Akathist Book.

Some have expressed interest in doing similarly, and with the thought I might be missing some, I make this thread asking everyone to link to Akathists they know of online.

Here are the Akathists to the Theotokos I dug up for Donna:


Akathist to the Holy Virgin
Akathist Hymn to the Most Holy Mother of God
Akathist to the Theotokos, Joy of All Who Sorrow
Akathist to the Most Holy Theotokos in Honor of the Icon of the Inexhaustable Cup This one is often used by alcoholics, as that icon has helped work miracles in the lives of many alcoholics.
Akathist to the Theotokos in Honor of Her Icon "The Queen of All"  Similar to the above but has helped those afflicted with cancer.

here is a list of Akathists I found over at Rdr. Alex's excellent site, The Onion Dome (these are real Akathists--not spoofs--found under the subpage "Orthodoxy on the Web"):

There are a couple there I had not seen before either.

I don't know if there are akathists at this site, but I know there's a ton of other stuff (mostly, if not all, in Slavonic unforunately).  Check it out though... http://www.rocm.org/e_genindex.htm
Now where were we? Oh yeah - the important thing was I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. They didn’t have white onions because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones...

I've printed off copies of akathists and other prayers from the links pager of theoniondome, as well as monachos.net and http://www.catholic-forum.com/members/popestleo/dailyprayer.html

Is this bootlegging if it is for persoanl use? Also are these prayers considered copywrite protected? The Episcopal Book of Common Prayer is considered in the publc domain for non-profit duplication, are prayers from Orthodox sites as well?

I know the ROCM site for the most part is free, except the Panyhida.

It is alright for personal use--not sure about commercial use, which is of course just plain silly as Akathist Books are available fairly cheaply.
