The '''Apostolos''' is the [[Liturgical books|liturgical book ]] containing the various epistle readings Apostolic Readings as they are appointed by the [[lectionary]].
==Liturgical use==
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.
The liturgical book itself, often has the readings arranged in three parts:
# according to the Orthodox liturgical year, the [[Pentecostarion|Pascha season]], the weeks after [[Pentecost]], and the season of [[Lenten Triodion|pre-Lenten, Great Lent, and Holy Week]].
# fixed feast days,
# and special Services such as Weddings or Baptism .
Another form of the book is the complete Acts and Epistles with an index of the readings, and with the proper introduction, such as "Brethren..." or "In those days...".
Also in this book, are the [[Prokeimenon]] and Alleluia Verses for each reading.
