Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. A Katholikon or Catholicon is the major temple (church building) of a monastery, or diocese in the Eastern Orthodox Church. The name derives from the fact that it is (usually) the largest temple where all gather together to celebrate the major feast days of the liturgical year. At other times, the smaller temples or chapels would be used. In Russia, it is common for a katholikon to have a smaller church in the basement which can be more easily heated in the winter.show more
