Is there a compelling reason to list all of the epistles here in addition to the listing here? [[User:Magda|—magda (talk)]] 14:44, 6 Aug 2005 (EDT)

Suggestion about the Title

I would suggest changing the title of this article to "Epistle Book", since most English speaking Orthodox speak of reading "the Epistle" rather than reading the "Apostolos" or the "Apostol". Not a big deal, but I think that title better reflects commons usage.

I agree with Father John.Wsk 18:41, June 18, 2007 (PDT)
I disagree, since Apostolos (or Apostol) is how the book is most often actually titled. This is an article on a technical term, just as the articles on the Horologion, Hieratikon, Liturgikon (etc.) are. —Fr. Andrew talk contribs 05:46, June 19, 2007 (PDT)
I agree with Fr. Andrew, the book contains more than just Epistles, the Acts of the Apostles is also part of this book. Another choice may be Apostolic Readings. The book often has the readings arranged according to the Orthodox liturgical year (in weeks after Pentecost, Lenten and Pascha season, fixed feast days, and special Services such as Weddings). But the book is sometimes the complete Acts and Epistles with an index of the readings. Also in this book, are the Prokeimena and alleluia verses for each reading.
