In 1582 Pope Gregory XIII introduced the calendar that now bears his name and which since that date has gradually been adopted by most secular states for daily use, as well as by the Roman Catholic and Protestant churches. It was adopted by some of the Orthodox churches in 1923. This booklet contains two articles arguing for the continuing use the Old or Julian Calendar in the Orthodox Church: "The 70th Anniversary of the Pan-Orthodox Congress in Constantinople: A Major Step on the Path Towards Apostasy" by Bishop Photius of Triaditsa (a hierarch of the Old Calendar Orthodox Church of Bulgaria), and "The Julian Calendar: An Icon of Time in Russia and Throughout the Orthodox World" by Ludmila Perepiolkina.? This is essential reading for all who wish to understand the reasons behind the calendar change of 1923 and why the Julian ecclesiastical calendar is the most fitting for use in the Orthodox Church. It also raises many fascinating questions as to the nature of time and of the many systems that have been and are employed to measure it. The most fundamental of these is whether chronological accuracy is the primary criteria in deciding what method should be used.
