Salvonic Gospels and Epistle books have several kinds of markings in the margin. One set of markings denotes the prescribes reading for the day, the feast of the Saint. There is another set of markings which are names of weekdays and numbers, which do not refer to the liturgical readings read in church, but are divisions for use in reading the New Testament privately ("in one's kellia").

This document lists these private reading divisons, up to this time not available in English.

This system results in the Epistles, minus the Apocalypse which is not printed in the liturgical Epistolary, being read through in 8 weeks, and the Gospels being read through in 4 weeks.

Since the Revelation (Apocalypse) of St. John is prescribed to be read in some seasons at the Night Vigil, and is in the Slavonic Bible, it is also included in the table below.

If read consecutively, the entire New Testament would thus be read through in 14 weeks, or about 4 times a year.

If read concurrently, the Gospels would be read through each month (actually 13 times in a year), and the Episles would be read in their entirety five times a year.

Thus far the Introductions to each of the Books of the New Testament that are in the Slavonic Epistle and Gospel books have not been published in English.

  1. The table below presents the chapters for the Gospels and Epistles, according to a 4 week schedule for the gospels 10 week schedule fot eh epistles.
  2. Another table presents a 52 week schedule of readings for the gospels and epistles, to be read in a reapeating consecutive Order
  3. The last table presents a 52 week schedule for the gospels and epistles to be read concurrently.
