Translation Matters: Things That Struck Me in Translating the Ieratikon

Episode date:
Transcript published:

So, indeed, as Fr. Marcus said, I translated the Simonopetra Ieratikon as it is, in three volumes. There’s a volume dedicated to each of the liturgies, our most common three liturgies, and to the accompanying services, so that at any liturgical time of the year, the priest grabs just one book. Not only has the office as we would call it, the daily services, but also in the second half of the book there are other services—common prayers, other…

Transcript published:

Fr. Stephen Freeman: Well, I hope this will work tonight. Shame is a topic that I’ve starting speaking on, writing on, the past five, going on six, years maybe, and I’ve had a lot of response when I have written about it, enough to say that it is a topic that could be written on a lot more.
