The Prophetologion (Slavonic: Paremijnik) is a text that contains the Old Testament Lectionary readings appointed at Vespers and at other services during the Church year. There have also been texts containing the Lenten Lectionary which have been published in English. Although it is not a Prophetologion, one classic text that contains the most commonly used portions of the entire Lectionary is "Divine Prayers and Services of the Catholic Orthodox Church of Christ" by Fr. Seraphim Nassar — commonly known as "The Nassar Five-Pounder."
