Liturgy Institute London

For a detailed and peaceful study of Liturgy

Reading Greek Liturgical Texts

1 – 12 July 2024, weekdays

Reading Greek-Byzantine liturgical texts is key to understanding Christian liturgy. Knowledge of Greek is very helpful to enter into the spirit of this essential tradition. The course consists of reading together several core segments of liturgical services. Basic knowledge of Greek is required, yet English translations are available as well.

Students may suggest texts such as:

The Anointing of the Sick
The (very popular) Lesser Blessing of the Waters.
The Eucharistic Prayer (anafora) of St Basil
The Eucharistic Prayer (anafora) of St John Chrysostom
