'''[[Pascha]]''' ({{lang-el|Πασχα}}), also called '''Easter''', is the feast of the '''[[Resurrection]] of the [[Jesus Christ|Lord]]'''. ''Pascha'' is a transliteration of the Greek word, which is itself a transliteration of the Hebrew ''pesach'', both words meaning ''[[Passover]]''(A minority of English-speaking Orthodox prefer the English word 'Pasch.')

Pascha normally falls either one or five weeks later than the feast as observed by Christians who follow the [[Gregorian calendar]].  However, occasionally the two observances coincide, and some years they can be two, four, or six weeks apart (but never three). The reason for the difference is that the older [[Julian Calendar]] uses a different [[paschalion]], the formula for calculating the date of Pascha.  This formula was determined by the [[First Ecumenical Council]].
