General Menaion or the Book of Services Common to the Festivals of our Lord Jesus of the Holy Virgin and of Different Orders of Saints

Translator: Orloff, N.
Author: Anonymous

In the Eastern Orthodox Church, the “General Menaion” refers to the annual fixed cycle of liturgical services, including festival days and days commemorating the Orthodox saints. This edition of the Russian Orthodox Menaion is a translation from the sixteenth edition of the 1862 Slavonian General Menaion. This prayer book can serve as an introduction to the services of the Eastern Orthodox Church as well as a catalogue of venerated persons within the Church.
