The Great Canon: The Work of Saint Andrew of Crete


 Product Description

Author: St. Andrew of Crete

Form: Paperback

Pages: 96

Holy Trinity Publications has prepared an improved and corrected edition of The Great Canon for distribution in time for Great Lent.

Among the changes:

  • The text has been thoroughly edited to conform precisely to the translation by Archimandrite Kallistos and Mother Mary, as published by Faber & Faber in 1977.
  • Scriptural citations are now given as footnotes, rather than inline text.
  • Rubrical instructions have been revised to conform to the practice of Holy Trinity Monastery.
  • Other minor errata have been corrected.

This is the classic canon of repentance, chanted in parts over the first four days of the Lenten Fast and in its entirety on the Thursday of the fifth week. The full text of the life of our Holy Mother Mary of Egypt is also given, as read liturgically during Matins on the Thursday of the fifth week. Traditional English translation by Mother Mary and Archimandrite Kallistos (Ware).

Pre-wrapped packs of 14 available at discount price of $99.95 (adjust quantity above).

  1. Very Great Book 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Mar 2019

    I attend the Old Cathedral of The Holy Virgin in San Francisco. My priest Father James recommended the Book for the Great Lent. It is a Great Book for lent, or anytime you wish great spiritual reading.

  2. Entering into Great Lent 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Feb 2017

    When I saw that Holy Trinity was publishing a book of this liturgy I wanted my own copy for the first week of Great Lent. It has good type size, well put together. As an added benefit it has "The Life of out Holy Mother Mary of Egypt" along with the liturgy.

  3. The Great Canon in English 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Feb 2017

    This is a very useful little booklet and allows the user to follow the Canon of Saint Andrew during the First and Fifth weeks of the Great Fast without holding heavy books. The translation found in the Lenten Triodion of Mother Mary and Bishop Kallistos has been wisely chosen as this is now by far the most widely used, for very good reasons.

    It is a pity that the text of Great Compline is not included. This would have added only a few pages but would have made the book even more valuable.

  4. Great improved re-issue! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Feb 2017

    This is a great re-issue of the Great Canon with some valuable improvements. I believe this uses the same translation as before, by Mother Mary and Archimandrite Kallistos Ware. However, the text has all been reset and is now much easier to read. The binding is still booklet-style binding with staples, but this has the advantage of keeping the cost down. The binding is certainly adequate and the glossy cover is more durable than the previous version.

    The new typesetting of the text alone makes this new version very worth purchasing.
