The '''Archieratikon''' (Greek: '''''Ἀρχιερατικόν''''', Slavonic: '''''Chinovnik''''') is the Book of Rites for hierarchical services of the [[Orthodox Church]] that has the same function as the [[Hieratikon]], but is intended for use by [[bishop]]s performing the services and contains directions for all the peculiarities of hierarchical services. Besides the order of the Vigil and the three liturgies, it contains the orders for the [[ordination]] or [[tonsure|tonsuring]] to various ecclesiastical ranks and the order of the consecration of the [[antimins]].
