Abstract:

"The Armenian language is rich with ecclesiastical terminology. ... Archbishop Malachia Ormanian perceived a need to make this vast knowledge accessible to the faithful. Ormanian explains that he has purposely refrained from writing a scholarly work but rather a concise and explicit description of ecclesiastical terminology to which the faithful are often exposed but do not necessarily comprehend. His language is in the vernacular; his descriptions concise and enlightening. In 1905 Archbishop Ormanian made his Ecclesiastical Dictionary available to the public, thus completing this monumental task. ... No less monumental was the task of translating Ormanian's work into English. Bedros Norehad has captured the spirit of Archbishop Ormanian. His language, like that of the author, is clear and his descriptions concise. ... The Mother Church has changed as a result of the Genocide, the Diaspora and the society around us and the translator has reflected the change without detracting from the intent of the original. This is not an academic work nor was it intended to be, yet as a reference for members of the Armenian Church and other interested individuals it is a storehouse of ecclesiastical knowledge."--From foreword.
