The Synaxarion, or liturgical typikon, of the monastery of Theotokos Evergetis, founded in 1049 just outside the walls of Constantinople, is probably the largest and most detailed guide to medieval monastic liturgical practice to have come down to us. So it is an ideal resource with which to begin, or continue, a study of Greek Orthodox liturgy. This volume, one of a set of four, contains a new, complete text and the first English translation of the prescriptions for the months of March to August from the fixed cycle, the complete movable cycle and a number of appendixes. This volume contains the full Greek text with a facing English translation. The first volume, containing the fixed cycle for the months September to February, and a third volume of Indexes are also available; a fourth volume of commentary on the Synaxarion is in preparation. All these volumes are part of the series Belfast Byzantine Texts and Translations and products of the British Academy funded Evergetis Project at Queen's University Belfast, where the editor and translator, Robert Jordan, was the Assistant Director of the Institute of Byzantine Studies. In his retirement he remains actively involved in the Evergetis Project.
