Great Lent is the period of six weeks following the Lenten Triodion...

I'm wondering about this. Doesn't the Triodion also cover all of Lent? As I look at my copy of The Lenten Triodion by Mo. Maria and Bp. Kallistos, it certainly covers far more than just those three weeks prior to Forgiveness Sunday. --Rdr. Andrew 17:23, 22 Feb 2005 (CST)

You are right. The Triodion is the service book that governs the entire period from the pre-Lenten weeks of preparation, through Greath Lent and Holy Week.DcnDavid 20:37, 22 Feb 2005 (CST)
