VIDEO: Orthodox Liturgics

Pt. 10: Christmas & Theophany

Part 9

St. Tikhon’s Monastery, the oldest Orthodox monastery in America, has published an in-depth, twelve-part video series on the fascinating yet complicated topic of Liturgics for Readers and Choir Directors in the Orthodox Christian tradition.

In this lesson, Fr. Herman discusses the Nativity season, beginning with the Nativity Fast, the two Sundays of the Forefathers before Christmas, the Christmas forefeast, the special services for Christmas Eve, and the feast itself. Then we look at how Theophany in most ways mirrors Nativity, noting a few differences. We also discuss how the order of services differs when Christmas or Theophany falls on either a Sunday or a Monday.
