A pericope is a portion of text selected to be read aloud, such as the Epistle and Gospel readings.

A pericope(Greek περικοπή; Slavonic: Зачало(Zachalo), "a cutting-out") is a portion of text selected to be read aloud, such as the Epistle and Gospel readings.

Lectionaries are normally made up of pericopes containing the Epistle and Gospel readings for the liturgical year. A pericope consisting of passages from different parts of a single book, or from different books of the Bible, and linked together into a single reading is called a [concatenation] or composite reading.
