The 2004 Church Calendar, with feast dates as observed in the Malankara
Church, is now available for download at http://sor.cua.edu/Calendar/.
Any distribution of the calendar should contain acknowledgement of the
source as printed in the copyright notice that appears in the footnotes of
each page. While not a pleasant task, given past experience, I do need to
remind some amongst us that the eighth commandment does apply to the digital
domain as well!
The calendar was generated by a Java application, the algorithms and
implementation of which are described in a paper that I presented at the
IVth Syriac Computing Forum at Princeton in July 2003. The presentation is
linked at http://sor.cua.edu/Calendar/

streaming archive of the same is at http://www.ptsem.edu/syriac03/links.htm
