Le ménologe impérial de Baltimore

365 p. This jewel of the Greek Patriarchate of Alexandria was fortunately found in 1939 in the Walters Art Gallery of Baltimore. It is a collection of 25 texts, which dates from the reign of Michael IV (1034-1041). These are published here with translations and brief commentaries. The saints treated in the document are all of the month of January, from St. Sylvester, whose feast is celebrated by the Greeks on New Year’s Day, to St. Eusebia-Xene of Mylassa, whose feast is celebrated on the 24 th of January.
