Rubrics are liturgical directions. The term comes from medieval service books, in which such instructions were written in red (Latin, ruber), to distinguish them from the text of the service itself.[1] Rubrics are found in service books, as well as in liturgical guides that focus exclusively on such instructions—the primary example being the Typikon itself, and the numerous modern texts that are based on the instructions found in the Typikon.
