In my Logos Library I see that there are two one year lectionary offers:

Christian Worship One Year Lectionary

and 

Lutheran Service Book Historic (One Year) Lectionary

I wonder if Logos also offers or has plans to the Classic Ancient Lectionary as it is presented at:

http://www.lectionarycentral.com/index.html

I have used this Lectionary for many years and found it very useful.

I would think you might be waiting a while unless there is much demand.

You could produce your own Lectionary Personal Book. There is a link to one that Gengis created https://community.logos.com/forums/t/194079.aspx which you may be able to workout how to modify for your own use.

You could also have a look through the Files subforum (https://community.logos.com/forums/66.aspx) to see if any other lectionaries that you could modify. I think I made one once using a spreadsheet to help create the docx file, I will see if I can find it which may aid producing your own one.

Here are the files I used to create something that functioned in the Logos 7 sidebar to give me links, as the Calendar Devotional that it is did not appear in the sidebar. I was not sure what I was doing at the time (even less so now) so it is probably not great, but it was useful to use a spreadsheet to create the docx at the time.


Looking at them both I must of pasted as 'Keep Text Only' then used Find and Replace in Word to tidy the document. The docx does compile in L8/9 but I whilst it appears you can add it as a lectionary card on the home screen, the card itself does not actually appear, and I do not have the time or desire to find out why. Hopefully Gengis's will work and you can change his.

1185.Connect the Testaments Lectionary.xlsx

6545.Connect the Testaments Lectionary.docx

Most of the work is extracting the text you want to show, and how you do that will depend on what formats you have it in. The spreadsheet helps to increment dates etc.

Good luck Yes

At this point, Faithlife only deals with lectionaries currently in use by "major" groups. I am working towards getting them interested in historical lectionaries.

Catholics still use the ancient one-year lectionary of the 1962 Missale Romanum... Wink

You're welcome.

Unfortunately, while FL's edition of this missal does include the lectionary readings, FL does not (yet) offer a separate lectionary resource.

If my understanding of the table at http://www.bible-researcher.com/lectionary1.html is correct, the historic lectionary should be available in the older lectionaries in Logos, i.e. the Anglican 1928 BCP and in the old Lutheran one-year lectionary pre-dating the RCL, i.e. Lutheran Service book (the Lutheran Christian Worship One Year Lectionary may be a somewhat revised version of that, for example it counts Sundays after Pentecost rather than after Trinity). My spot checks on various dates seem to confirm that.

But it clearly is possible to build a PB lectionary with exactly the texts you want and the assignment of church year Sundays to secular dates your congregation adheres to.
