Hugh Wybrew

“Like the first book in this series, Orthodox Lent, Holy Week and Easter, this present book was written by an English Anglican (Episcopalian) primarily for Christians of Western tradition, and was first published in the United Kingdom. So the original Introduction, still included here, briefly compares the western and eastern cycle of fixed festivals, which celebrate the incarnation of God in Christ, and the birth, death and resurrection of his Virgin Mother. [...]Orthodox readers of the present edition will be familiar with their own calendar, which information relating to the the western calendar may be of interest to them.”
—“Preface to the American Edition”
