Thanks for the pictures.  I met the Priest and Deacon at the last General Assembly in Paris.

You could call it that. It's a suburb outside of Copenhagen.

Sorry to hear, as I love byzantine chant and I think it's more suitable do various languages than Russian chants. Wink

I don't think so. They're maybe a bit specific, but they're nice, despite the fact it's not my favourite way of chanting Wink

The weird thing is that the Swedish that is taught in Finnish schools is not like that. It's a bit more like rikssvenska. I'm constantly bewildered by the fact that most finlandsvenskar in Helsinki seem to pronounce their language exactly like Finnish is pronounced.

Now when you mention it, it does sound like finnish pronounciation.

Personally, I can't read finlandsvenskar. I have a hard enought time, trying to understand rikssvenska.

That's common: Riksmal in Norway came from the Danish spoken in Christiana with Norwegian pronunciation.

Not liturgically at least. The prayer book and liturgy book translated by Fr. Johannes Johansen, who is in charge of most (all?) the Norwegian speaking parishes, try to imitate the language of the 1930 edition of the Bible, though I know he has amended the Psalter to match the LXX.

The new Bible translation is all about readability, it's not very well suited for liturgical use. However, I have found the new translation to be much more accurate and faithful to the original Greek than older versions, at least in certain places. That should perhaps make it the Bible of choice among Orthodox for private reading.

If it's the one from 2011, I don't think so. If I remember correctly, it contains translations of words, which most Orthodox probably wouldn't agree with. For example, "virgin", in many places, are translated as "young woman".

It's privately used by the Orthodox since it's the only Norwegian translation we have. (I think there might be some alternatives, but they're not in production anymore and most of the alternatives are Jehovas witnesses bibles and well... quirky stuff)

The bible is translated with the "earliest text" principle. I think that's very acceptable and Orthodox compared to say:
translating it from the latin vulgata.

Ansgar is correct of course, Some Greek words can be interpreted in a "conservative" or "liberal" way, and they have pretty much gone with "liberal" at every opportunity.

Finlandssvenska är grammatiskt och till ordförrådet mycket nära vad jag skulle kalla vanlig svenska. Finlandssvenskt uttal är tydligt och alltså inte svårt att förstå. Länken verkar dock inte fungera. Sidan jag fick fram ger ett felmeddelande av typen "sidan fanns inte" (404).

Gudstjänster på svenska. Den här länken skulle fungera lite bättre.

Det är intressant att du tycker att Finlandssvenka är inter så svårt att förstå. Jag tror det var Ansgar som sade att han förstörde nästan någonting när han försokte att läsa någon skrivning om ortodoxi på Finlandssvensk. Jag har också hört om andra Skandinaviska personer som förstår inte Finlandssvenska även om de förstår Rikssvenska.

Tack för länken.

Sådana svårigheter måste bero på begränsade kunskaper i svenska. Det finns gott om skandinaver som inte kan svenska, eller som bara kan lite svenska. Det finns svenskar som inte kan sitt eget modersmål särskilt bra. Det finns svenskar som inte har tillräckliga kunskaper i svenska för att förstå andra dialekter än de som ligger dem närmast. Att skilja på finlandssvenska och svenska som om de vore olika språk är felaktigt, anser jag. Finlandssvenska är en svensk dialekt, precis som västgötska, värmländska, göteborgska, småländska osv. För en person - svensk eller inte - som har genomsnittliga kunskaper i svenska är det inte alls svårt att förstå finlandssvenska.

Like North America, Scandinavia has a local Church in it. Even better than North America, everyone recognizes that Church as the canonical jurisdiction in Finland, which exists as a constituent part of Scandinavia.  There is no reason why the Church of Finland should not, per canon 2 of the Second Ecumenical Council, exercise jurisdiction throughout Scandinavia

Just out of curiosity, what do you think of the idea of being under Finland instead of your present jurisdiction?
