From the Publisher

"As the death and resurrection of Jesus are central for the Christian faith, so Lent, Holy Week and Easter are central in the Christian calendar. This book describes the observance of this season in the Orthodox Christian Tradition by presenting selected liturgical texts from the services of its most significant days. Each day's material is set in its liturgical context and accompanied by a brief theological and spiritual commentary. A concise opening section outlines the development of this season in the Byzantine rite and its present patterns in the Orthodox Church.

Orthodox Lent, Holy Week and Easter introduces the reader to the richness of Orthodox liturgical prayer in this vital season. It provides Christians of all traditions with material for meditation and personal prayer, helping us all to become faithful disciples of the crucified and risen Christ.

Hugh Wybrew is the vicar of St Mary Magdalene's Church, Oxford. He is the author of The Orthodox Liturgy, The Development of the Eucharistic Liturgy in the Byzantine Rite, also published by St Vladimir's Seminary Press."
