Consecration of Eastern Orthodox Monks
« on: April 24, 2014, 10:25:53 AM »
Hey does anyone have a video/link to a video of EO monks being consecrated? (stavrophore or even Great Schema if possible  ;) )
I know these are not usually recorded. there are only a few videos out there for coptic monks and only one that was really good (and complete). Let me know guys!

Here is a video of a nun's tonsure.

It's hard to see anything, but here is a video from Jordanville.

Thanks. It appears that the consecration is different for men and women. or is it jurisdiction? or maybe i just can't see anything the second video.
