Welcome to the Orthodox Products forum!

This is the place to find out about new Orthodox products, as well as request new products or features for Logos that are relevant to Orthodox Christians.

If you have questions about Orthodox theology or practice, you can ask them here (or email me), and I'd be happy to oblige—but please keep polemics and debates out of the forums, as always! Smile

How can you get started?

The number one site you should bookmark is the Orthodox landing page on Logos.com: https://www.logos.com/orthodox - Here you will find out about new products, monthly sales, special giveaways, and more. You can also sign-up for our email list, which also has special giveaways and sales every month.

We have a Logos Orthodox blog that will share interesting insights from Orthodox products, as well as point out special sales and product releases: http://orthodox.logos.com/ 

If you're on social media, be sure to like and follow Logos Orthodox on Twitter: https://twitter.com/LogosOrthodox 

And on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/LogosOrthodox 

We also have a Faithlife Group: https://faithlife.com/logos-orthodox/

Gabe,

I think I heard you present on Ancient Faith Radio. Can you take a phone call?

Is there an option in Logos to use an Orthodox lectionary on the home screen?

I was trying to make lectionary plural but goofed - Whoops.  [And edit post errors out]

We're working to have both a Julian and Revised Julian ("New") Calendar Byzantine Lectionary for our Orthodox, Verbum, and other interested users. Should be finished early in 2015.

I know delays in software development are both common and inevitable, but is the Orthodox lectionary almost finished? This would be a real boon.

Thanks,

Kenneth

Kenneth,

Thanks for your question and interest! We are working on a few Byzantine/Orthodox lectionaries right now for a future product release. Stay tuned for more details.

Question: will these be full Lectionaries or Lectionary Tables of Readings?

Please review:

QUESTION: Lectionary for Mass in Liturgy Layout
https://community.logos.com/forums/t/104325.aspx 

Official Liturgical Resource Available for Pre-Order
https://community.logos.com/forums/t/104326.aspx 

As MJ. Smith says: In short, Logos does not carry Lectionaries, they carry Lectionary Tables of Readings.

Hi Gabe,

I would like to use my Logos 6 simple with Orthodox Bundle XL to help in preparation of my weekly Bible study.  Before I ordered it, I asked the sales rep through a chat if it is possible to look at a verse and see the various Patristic commentary on it and she said yes.  I can't seem to figure it out and don't really have the time to wade through a bunch of training videos to figure it out. 

So, how do I pull up a verse or a pericope (or a whole chapter) and see the commentary on it.   Also, because I am teaching the Gospel of Mark, there are not a lot of commentaries specifically on Mark, so is there a way to pull up the corresponding synoptic pericopes to see the various patristic commentaries on them.  Thank you very much.

Hi Father Nathan - and welcome to the forums.

Father Nathan Thompson:

Before I ordered it, I asked the sales rep through a chat if it is possible to look at a verse and see the various Patristic commentary on it and she said yes.  I can't seem to figure it out and don't really have the time to wade through a bunch of training videos to figure it out. 

So, how do I pull up a verse or a pericope (or a whole chapter) and see the commentary on it

Select the passage you are interested in, right-click on it, select "Reference" on the right-hand side of the popup "context" menu and then click "Passage Guide" on the left

This will open a "Passage Guide" with a number of sections. Open the one called "Commentaries" and you will see all of your commentaries which are commenting on the selected passage

Father Nathan Thompson:

Not in a single step - you would need to enter the corresponding passages into the Passage Guide and run it again

Hope this helps.

Generally its better to post questions like these in separate threads so that they get the attention they deserve. If my answers above haven't fully answered your questions please start a new thread
