Surprises in a Ukrainian Euchology: Wedding Rites in a 16th-century Trebnyk from the Stefanyk Library in Lviv
by Prof. Rev. Peter Galadza, PhD.  ( Faculty of Theology, Saint Paul University - Ottawa)

Prof. Galadza will analyze the wedding rite found in a 16th-century Western Ukrainian euchology. Especially from the perspective of present-day usage, the rite is significantly different, with several fascinating features. The euchology (trebnyk) under consideration is the first in a series of manuscripts that have been transcribed for the Slavonic-English Analytical Catalogue of Liturgical Manuscripts in Ukrainian Repositories (SEACLMUR) compiled by Prof. Galadza, and supported by a major SSHRC grant.

Prof. Peter Galadza is Kule Family Professor of Liturgy at the Sheptytsky Institute of Eastern Christian Studies, Saint Paul University, Ottawa.
