The Prophetologion


 Product Description

Editor: Reader Peter Gardner

Format: Hardcover

Pages: 576

The Prophetologion is the Old Testament Lectionary for the Orthodox Church. This book contains every Old Testament reading read throughout the Liturgical year, along with the associated prokeimena. Vespers readings from the New Testament were included.

Other Epistle readings were included if they are appointed to be read at a service which also has at least one Old Testament reading (mainly Royal Hours and Vesperal Liturgies), thus obviating the need to switch books, if one reader is reading both.

Biblical passages from the Old Testament are taken from the Septuagint, as translated by Lancelot Brenton, with most names rendered according to standard English usage. Psalm verses are taken from the Psalter According to the Seventy, published by Holy Transfiguration Monastery. Biblical passages from the New Testament are taken from the King James Version.

This book is arranged according to the Russian usage, with Byzantine usage differences noted, when possible.

  1. A valued resource among my prayer books! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Aug 2015

    Having the Prophetologion available for my prayer at Vespers is a great blessing and for me it increases the depth of meaning and understanding for the particular Saint(s) being celebrated when I am able to have before me the appropriate OT and NT readings that accompany each of them. I am able to appreciate more the beauty and wisdom that has gone into the structure of all the various parts of Vespers as well. The book is well laid out and uses the best translation of the Holy Bible in the English (King James) of which I am also appreciative. The book is appropriately sized . It would be nice to have a ribbon or two for marking pages and maybe a little darker and larger font. The price is excellent considering the work and the material involved in publishing this volume. I also love the handsome slip cover with the Icons ! Excellent work!
