Accordance Resources for Eastern Orthodox Interests (Blog Post)

Recommended Posts

We had a professor from an Orthodox seminary contact us wanting to know what resources were available in Accordance along the lines of Eastern Orthodox interests. I put together a list we sent to him and then created a blog post from it for others who might be interested. Basically, this is a listing of titles related to Patristics, Septuagint studies and related subjects.

Thanks. Unfortunately I don't see any modern Greek Bible in the list. Examples would be 1228112187_Bildschirmfoto2021-06-03um11_53_49.thumb.png.ff9ab12dc06ce8b693b77b388ec43ae3.png

Sadly, the current Turkish government has converted the Hagia Sophia back into a mosque. The same for Chora Church. I have no idea what is available for tourists to see. I'm glad I got to visit both when I did.

Well, the professor who originally asked for the list was from an American seminary with Russian roots.

 

It may surprise non-Orthodox to know that an increasing number of Orthodox churches in the US don't use traditional Greek, Arabic, Russian, etc. content in most of their services anymore. I belong to an Antiochian Orthodox Church, and we only hear snippits of Greek or Arabic occasionally, but more during Pascha (Easter) than any other time. [Side note: during this year's Pascha, I helped out at a small Greek Orthodox chapel where Greek is still used a good bit. If you'd like to hear us sing Psalm 148 in Greek and English from the Holy Saturday service, click here. This recording was from a rehearsal.]

 

So, I didn't venture into modern, non-English Bible translations because I'd have to figure out which Greek, Russian, Romanian, etc. translations were Orthodox as opposed to Protestant or Catholic versions. I assume that if a person is looking for one of these, they will know what they're looking for, see what we offer, and choose accordingly.
