Divine Liturgy texts
Would it be useful to put a copy of Abp. Dmitri's (OCADOS) translation here on OrthodoxWiki ? AFAIK it is freely reproducible. --Rdr. Chris 18:22, 25 Jan 2005 (CST)
- Perhaps links to online copies would be best. After all, if we put one usage on OrthodoxWiki, we'd conceivably have to put them all on. :) I think most already exist in external links, anyhow. --Rdr. Andrew 18:41, 25 Jan 2005 (CST)
Lots of Markup leading to a "portal" article
I put in a lot more markup and made some minor changes in wording to make the rendering more literal, e.g. "Only One is holy" became "One is holy", and "without change" became "without corruption" (which means change, but is lexically much richer).
Why add so much markup? I was thinking that this article could serve as a kind of category article into specialized topics in the Divine Liturgy. There's a wealth of reflection on these issues (e.g. Taft's hundreds of pages on the Great Entrance or the diptychs. Certainly there are some experts in our Orthodox community who could provide much more information about these things.
I guess I'm looking not only for an historical overview of practices, but also descriptions of the diversity that continues today within and among Orthodox jurisdictions. God-willing, in time, OrthodoxWiki will be uniquely suited to this kind of task. What do you think? FrJohn 00:04, 26 Jan 2005 (CST)
- Yes, exactly. I've read Fr. Taft's short book on the Byzantine Rite as well has his book Liturgy of the Hours in East and West, but not the one that everyone talks about on the Liturgy. What I put up was mostly to get people going, not be the Thing Itself. --18.104.22.168 05:59, 26 Jan 2005 (CST)
