Liturgical Calendars

The term Liturgical Calendar can be used in two ways. In Liturgical Calendar's more narrow sense it refers to a schematic presentation of the months of the year, bearing alongside of the numeral indicating each day, the designation of any festival or memorial of fixed date assigned to that day. In its broader sense, liturgical calendar refers to the whole shaping of the week and the year by religious observances, a tradition of liturgical articulation of time that has its roots in the Old Testament and that has continued in Chrisyianity from the first century forward. Over the centuries various texts appropriate to each day of the liturgical calendar have been organized in books intended for the conduct of worship.
