The '''Apostolos''' is the liturgical book containing the various
epistle readings as they 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.
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.
