Description


The Euchologion Unveiled describes and explains the sacramental services of the Orthodox Church. The Euchologion is the liturgical book that priests use to serve all the mysteries, or sacraments, of the Church. Archbishop Job "unveils" the history, meaning, and structure of these services, and the Orthodox understanding of the sacraments, through which believers receive grace and become partakers of the divine life.


Though most people have heard of "the seven sacraments" -baptism, chrismation, the Eucharist, confession, marriage, ordination, and unction-this is a later western schema, and the Orthodox Church performs several other sacramental rites, which are also explained here: monastic tonsure, the funeral, the sanctification of chrism, the consecration of a church, and the blessing of water.


This is a companion volume to The Typikon Decoded, and the second volume of An Explanation of Byzantine Liturgical Practice.
