MENOLOGION ©1997-2001 by Thomas G. (Michael) Purcell
and is dedicated to
St. John the Wonderworker of Shanghai and San Francisco
who loved and venerated all the Saints.
MENOLOGION 2.0 is a free computer program which provides an
easy way to access the Troparia, Kontakia and Bible Readings of the day. This
might be useful for a variety of reasons. If you need to put the Troparia and
Kontakia or Bible Readings in a Sunday bulletin, you will be able to find the
items you want easily, and copy them to the Windows clipboard, so that you can
paste them directly into your word processor or publishing program.
When the program first starts, it reads the date set in your
computer's clock and displays the selected readings for the current date. You
can set the program to display dates according to the Old Calendar or the New
Calendar. You can select any date and display the Troparia and Kontakia or
Bible Readings for that date. It is also possible to browse through the
Troparia and Kontakia and Bible Readings either forward or backward day by day.
And you can search for and find saints by name.
MENOLOGION can also display an Icon next to the text of
Troparia and Kontakia or Bible Readings. There are 53 Icons included in the
main program, with another 380 Icons available in an optional Supplemental Icon
Library, containing at least one saint for every day of the
year. MENOLOGION can be downloaded either with or
without the Supplemental Icon Library, and the Supplemental Icon
Library itself can be downloaded separately.
