Greek Horologion
« on: June 28, 2013, 09:01:00 AM »
I was wondering where I could order a Greek horologion which ships to the Netherlands. Could anyone help me out? Thanks.

Apostoliki Diakonia. Prices and low and shipping isn't very expensive. They don't have the pocket-size Papadimitriou edition, though, which is much more handy if you want to take it with you to church and whatnot.

That was the first place I went but I couldn't find it there. I'll look harder.

LOL. We can get them here across the pond, I'm sure you should be able to get one across the continent.
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Great link. Thanks.

Before I order, is there an English-languaged site that sells it?

Not that I know of, but if there is I'd assume it would be more expensive than buying directly from Athens.

I never knew about this place until now. I've already started a wish list.  Thanks.

It's the official bookstore of the Church of Greece.

Just make sure you check shipping options. Within Greece, they ship mostly by next-day courier delivery. Overseas orders may require special negotiations.

Personally I prefer Ekdosis Fos, but they tend to be more expensive, plus I don't know where to get them online. I have only seen them in ecclesiastical bookshops in Cyprus.

The To Perivoli tis Panagias has some nice, cheap editions as well. Even of the Horologion. Quite difficult to find them online.

Pardon for asking, but what non-Greek laymen do with Greek Horologion?

I found it here but then I'd have to mail or phone them. I've had enough experience with calling to Greece to know that they won't speak English. I did find their LXX psalter in a bookstore once. I really enjoy it.

My collection of Greek Liturgical books wouldn't be complete without one, now would it?

Non-Greek laymen with a good command of Greek, such as Cyrillic, would have access to the original text of the daily offices they pray at home and hear at church. If an equivalent book does not exist in the native languages of said non-Greek laymen, or if those languages could not accurately convey the poetry or meaning of the original (I dont know about Dutch or Finnish, but that is certainly the case with Norwegian), access to the original would be of great benefit. Moreover, if said non-Greek laymen happen to belong to a parish where Greek is the primary liturgical language, they would be able to familiarise themselves with, and perhaps even memorise, the texts they hear in church to allow for a greater level of comprehension and participation.

Funny thing is that had he asked "Where could I get a copy of the HTM or Jordanville Horologia" I very much doubt anyone would ask what a Dutchman was doing with an English prayerbook ;)
