The General Menaion
This image is for illustration only. The product is a download.

Overview

The full Menaion of the Orthodox Church comprises 12 volumes—one for each month of the liturgical year—and contains the specific texts used in each daily service. The General Menaion, however, is a broader version, offering structures for each type of commemoration, including services to apostles, prophets, martyrs, monastics, and more. For those unfamiliar with the Orthodox Church, this work serves as a valuable introduction to the structure of the liturgical year, the content of different services, and the history of many saints.

The English translation by N. Orloff, used for this digital version of the General Menaion, is based on the text of the Slavonic sixteenth edition printed in 1862. The Logos edition is designed to enhance and accelerate your studies. Scripture passages link directly to your preferred English translations and original-language texts, and important theological concepts link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your library. In addition, you can perform powerful searches by Scripture reference or topic within the General Menaion.
