Horologions
« on: August 06, 2014, 07:10:40 PM »
Where does the standard "Book of Hours" for Orthodox Christians come from?

The only Horologion I've seen in person is the one produced by the Old-Rite Church of the Nativity in Erie, PA, which is "according to the typicon of the Holy Land and Great Lavra of our holy and God-bearing father Sabbas the Sanctified". Are all Horologions according to the St. Sabbas Monastery, or is this an "Old-Rite" thing.

Thank you and God bless.
Is it the "in" thing to say "I don't post here" but still post here?

Yes. Acctually, entire Byzantine rite today comes from redaction of Sabaite monks. :)

Thank you for your reply. In hindsight that should have been obvious, seeing as the reforms under Patriarch Nikon were only revisions of the service books.
