SYNAXARION, THE: THE LIVES OF THE SAINTS OF THE ORTHODOX CHURCH - VOL 1: INTRODUCTION, SEPTEMBER, OCTOBER

Author: MAKARIOS, HIEROMONK OF SIMONAS PETRA, TRANS. FROM THE FRENCH BY CHRISTOPHER HOOKWAY #: 23433
A spiritual treasure chest, this is the first volume in the much awaited translation from the French original. This Synaxarion is unique in its catholicity, telling forth the lives of the saints not only of Greece and the Middle East, Russia and Eastern Europe, but also those of the undivided Church in the West. It is also contemporary, featuring saints of the twentieth century. Suitable for both liturgical use ( it indicates the level of liturgical commemoration for each saint ) and private devotion. Its substantial introduction explains the importance of the remembrance of the saints and a series of maps clearly illustrates where they lived. Includes several full colour icon plates and other illustrations.
