Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Koliva is boiled wheat which is used liturgically in the Eastern Orthodox and Greek-Catholic Churches. This ritual food is blessed after the memorial Divine Liturgy performed at various intervals after a death; after the funeral; during mnemosyna - memorial services; on the first Friday of the Great Lent, at slavas, or at mnemosyna in the Christmas meal. Due to its pleasant taste, in some countries (though not in Greece or Cyprus), it is consumed on non-religious occasions as well, often with cream on top (though not with cream on fast days).show more
