***

Kiev,  Kiev-Pechersk Lavra, 1783.

An akathist is a hymn/prayer of devotion, thanksgiving and petition, dedicated to a saint, holy event, or a person of the Trinity.  As the word Akathist means “standing,” the hymn is prayed standing. Akathists are chanted in Orthodox and other Eastern churches, though chanting is not necessary if prayed individually or in a small group. This akathist is dedicated to Holy Mary and Saint Nicholas the Wonderworker. Book is in very good condition with beautiful initials, flags and illustrations of the saints. All leaves are decorated with vignettes.

Condition:  Text printed in red and black color. First three leaves damaged (text not affected), cracked gutter, stains due to the aging and usage, some minor wax stains, leaf 86 torn along its width (text not affected), letters on some of the pages slightly faded.
