Greek Menologium bound in a 35 x 28 x 4 cm. beautifully crafted silver binding, with silvermarks. The binding is richly decorated with 38 different biblical images with texts in Greek. A Menologium is any collection of information arranged according to the days of a month. In particular, it is used for the liturgical books the Eastern Orthodox Church used following the Byzantine Rite, which list the propers for fixed dates, typically in twelve volumes covering a month each and largely concerned with saints.
