Such a dictionary has been published for the first time and includes a large amount of modern Greek ecclesiastical terminology.
This book includes terminology and concepts of theological subjects, such as dogmatics, Biblical studies, liturgics, iconography, hymnography, church law, Orthodox anthropology and Christian ethics, church architecture, Byzantine chant, sectology, and a so-called “Vocabulary of Mt. Athos,” which depicts language fundamentals of the monastic life on Mt. Athos.
Dictionary entries are followed by explanatory articles about the specifics of Greek church practice. The dictionary is recommended to clergymen, students of theological institutions, translators, pilgrims, and all those who wish to come into contact with the treasures of the Greek language.
