Menologium

Menologium (from the Greek menológion, from mén “a month”; Latin menologium), also written menology, and menologe, is a service-book used in theEastern Orthodox Church and those Eastern Catholic Churches which follow the Rite of Constantinople.

From its derivation, menologium means “month-set”; in other words, a book arranged according to the months. Like a good many other liturgical terms (e.g.lectionary), the word has been used in several quite distinct senses.Image
