Patriarchate of Moscow's publishing house releases liturgical Holy Gospel

Moscow, March 23, 2014

The publication continues the series of new Church Slavonic books with computer typesetting. It is based on the text of the liturgical Gospel, which was printed in 1905 by the Moscow Synodal Printing House, reports Tserkovny Vestnik ("Church Bulletin"). The structure of the book corresponds to the traditional editions of altar Gospels.

The large print of the Gospel's main text is easy to read. Advantages of computer formatting allowed for the placement of text on the pages conveniently and beautifully. The church calendar, which includes the order of Gospel readings, feasts and saints throughout the year, is supplemented with names of the saints, who have been canonized in recent years, with Gospel readings appointed for their feast-days. A list of Gospel readings for the general services to the New Martyrs and Confessors of the Russian Church in the 20th century is added to the section, where common Gospel readings according to categories of saints are indicated.

The Gospel is printed in the traditional Church Slavonic script (Triodion) in two colors. The book comes in a durable hardcover format. The text is richly adorned with elegant bloomers, ornate letterings and ornaments.

The size of the new edition (14х20х5 centimeters) allows it be used also as a lesser altar Gospel.
