The Russian word "ustav" means typicon, and indicates that our discussion will be slanted towards the Russian Orthodox typicon and music, as practiced in the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia (http://www.rocor.org), but all other traditional usages may also be discussed.
ROCOR uses the church calendar (the so called "Julian", or "Old" calendar), and discussion will generally be assumed to be involving this calendar.
Those who follow the "New Calendar" or are not Orthodox Christians are welcome to participate, but this list is not intended to be a debate forum to argue about calendars or to present New Calendar usages as, for traditional Orthodox, this issue is closed. Other usages from non Orthodox should not be presented, except for occasional comparison purposes.
In general, this list is for traditional Orthodox Christians who love the church and it's typicon, and want to learn more about it, and help others to learn about it, or anyone who wishes to learn about the beauty and theological profundity of Orthodox Christian worship and music.
The most common and preferred language, understandable to the vast majority, will be English. Other languages may be used, especially Russian.
Anyone who is interested in the Orthodox Church's typicon, and does not send spam, is free to join Ustav.
The Moderator is Priest Seraphim Holland, St Nicholas Russian Orthodox Church, Dallas, TX
