Seasons And Feasts Of The Church Year: An Introduction.
In the Eastern Orthodox Church, the feast of the Resurrection of Jesus, called Pascha (Easter), is the greatest of all holy days and as such it is called the "feast of feasts". Immediately below it in importance, there is a group of Twelve Great Feasts (Greek: Δωδεκάορτον). Together with Pascha, these are the most significant dates on the Orthodox liturgical calendar. Eight of the great feasts are in honor of Jesus Christ, while the other four are dedicated to the Virgin Mary - the Theotokos.

Church year, annual cycle of seasons and days observed in the Christian churches in commemoration of the life . Formation of the church year.
Church year, annual cycle of seasons and days observed in the Christian churches in commemoration of the life, death, and Resurrection of Jesus Christ and of his virtues as exhibited in the lives of the saints. Learn about the church year’s origins and the traditions of the major branches of Christianity. In his earthly life, Jesus was subject to the laws of sabbath, feast, and fast prescribed in the Hebrew Bible, but his ministry and teaching pointed to a new age, the coming kingdom of God, when the Law would be fulfilled.
The church year has largely slipped from our historical memory. This is a lovely and wise introduction to the seasons of the church year. If we observe it at all, it is during Advent and Lent. But even in those cases we do not see the signficance of the church year for our understanding of time. Kimberlee Conway Ireton has served the church well in this useful little book.
