Canons to the Saints website
« on: January 26, 2019, 12:09:18 PM »
Dear all interested parties,
I have been translating various canons to the saints for my own use.  I enlisted the help of a doctoral student of Classics to edit my work.  Now they are put up on a website.  It is my hope that people will use these canons.  If someone has questions about this particular bit of translation or that phrasing, feel free to raise them.  The address is https://canonstothesaints.blogspot.com/.  Thanks. 
Faithfully,
Rdr. Daniel (Monroe)

Thanks Daniel... from a cursory glance these look great. I’ll have to more closely examine them cater. Are you fitting them to the Byzantine meters?

I appreciate your comments. 
The Byzantine meter is totally out of the question.  My pale muse bites her nails just to turn them into passable English.  Even that's open to doubt, as our writers often use words or constructions which have no discernible presence in Classical or even Biblical Greek.
