Evening Worship in the Orthodox Church
The evolution of the rites of Vespers and the Liturgy of the Presanctified Gifts, from their Old Testamental antecedents and primitive forms in the early Church to their present forms. The differences between the Greek and Russian orders of service for the sacraments of Penance and the Eucharist. A valuable historical-liturgical study.
