Full text of Offering of Incense now available - Severus - 28-01-2007
The British Orthodox Press has just published "The Offering of The Morning and Evening Incense" 126 pp.
The Coptic services for the Raising of Morning and Evening Incense are not simply viewed as forms of worship at which incense is used but the incense itself is considered an 'offering'. This translation into traditional liturgical English uniquely offers detailed ceremonial instructions with a scholarly introductory essay by Father Gregory Tillett. This examines the historical origins of the service as well as the development of the rubrics and of the English text.

BOC Publications - John Charmley - 28-01-2007
Thank you for alerting us to this.
It has prompted me to pose a question I have had for some time, which is whether it would be possible to have something of the same sort on the Liturgy of St. James?
I have enjoyed, and profited from, Abba Seraphim's articles in the Glastonbury Review, and from the work of Fr. John Ross, but have sense that previous issues of the Review may also have excellent material; if so, might it perhaps be possible to bring them together as a booklet?
I suspect that there might be others, also new to the BOC, who would like to know more about its ancient and historic liturgy, and such a booklet might be very useful for those coming to our services for the first time.
Of course, some of our enquirers are very knowledgeable on matters liturgical, but for some of us who are not, information about it would be a blessing. I had a copy of an old Alcuin Society pamphlet, but nothing could have prepared me properly for its beauty, and I immediately wanted to know everything I could about it.
Would others concur, or is it just me?

An official BOC text of the Liturgy of St James would be very helpful (especially with some notes!). Does the BOC currently use a particular edition / version / translation?
