Re: [ustav] St Stephen Dechani
- Dear Friends --
In the Serbian calendar, St Stephan of Dechani, King of Serbia, is
commemorated on 11 November. Bulgakov's 'Handbook' also includes him on this
date with a brief biographical note, but quotes no hymns.
I have English-language texts for both the apolytikon and kontakion, but --
archaic-style language notwithstanding -- they are so deficient in grammar
and unable to convey meaning successfully that it would be unethical to
If someone can provide me with the Serbian Church Slavonic originals, I'll
gladly translate them.
Peace and blessings to all.
