The '''Apostolos'''  is the [[Liturgical books|liturgical book]] containing the various Apostolic Readings as are appointed by the [[lectionary]].
+
 
+
 
+
An ''apostolos'' or ''epistle'' is a writing directed or sent to a person or group of persons, usually a letter and a very formal, often didactic and elegant one. The letters from [[Apostles]] to Christians in the [[New Testament]] are often referred to as epistles.
+
==Liturgical use==
+
In the context of the [[Divine Liturgy]] or other liturgical service, ''epistle'' may refer more specifically to a particular passage from a New Testament epistle, or from the [[Acts of the Apostles]], that is scheduled to be read on a certain day or at a certain occasion.
+
 
+
The liturgical book itself, often has the readings arranged in three parts:
+
# according to the Orthodox liturgical year, the [[Pentecostarion|Pascha season]], the weeks after [[Pentecost]], and the season of [[Lenten Triodion|pre-Lenten, Great Lent, and Holy Week]].
+
# fixed feast days,
+
# and special Services such as Weddings or Baptism .
+
 
+
Another form of the book is the complete Acts and Epistles with an index of the readings, and with the proper introduction, such as "Brethren..." or "In those days...".
+
 
+
Also in this book, are the [[Prokeimenon]] and Alleluia Verses for each reading.
