Welcome to the Web Store of Holy Apostles Convent, located in the mountains outside of beautiful Buena Vista, Colorado. We are an Orthodox Christian monastery, living according to the traditions handed down to us by the holy fathers and mothers of the Orthodox Church.

Our monastery is entirely self-supporting. We do not solicit contributions for our continuing existence.

Holy Apostles Convent translates the Holy Scriptures and the Lives of the Saints from the original Greek texts, and publishes them in extraordinarily high quality books. All of our publications are lavishly adorned with icons throughout the text for the reader's edification and enjoyment.

Dormition Skete, located just up the hill from us, offers some of the finest icons available in the world. They offer hand-painted panel icons and frescoes, as well as mounted icons. They also produce many other products relating to the Orthodox Faith. Please take the time to visit their website, too, at http://www.DormitionSkete.org.

Please take some time to explore our website, and we hope you will order some of the fruits of our labors.



The Orthodox Psalter

FULL-SIZED (6.25" x 9.25") ENGLISH VERSION of the Psalms and Nine Biblical Odes, translated from the Septuagint and the Greek Psalterion authorized by the Church of Greece. This new revised and expanded 2nd edition can be used in the divine offices of the Church. Twenty groups of Psalms, called kathismata, have been arranged and versified according to the Greek Psalterion. Although the Septuagint numbering of Psalms is used, yet KJV numbering also appears. Six expanded Tables of Usage are furnished, as well as a general listing of the Psalms for daily services as provided in The Great Horologion, and an alphabetical list of introductory verse of each Psalm. As with our former publication of THE ORTHODOX NEW TESTAMENT in two volumes, this publication also equips the reader with Patristic Commentary and notes on select verses and inscriptions of the book of Psalms. The full-sized version is a sturdy black Smyth-sewn case-bound book, with gold stamping, and a burgundy double-sided grosgrain ribbon marker. Black and red printing of text throughout, on high-opacity acid-free 80-pound creamy pages, in a very easy-to-read 14-point bold typeface for the Psalms, and a readable and clear 10-point typeface for the Commentary. Words of God and others are set in quotation marks. Bibliography furnished for Commentary. Illustrated. Bookstore discounts available. $26.00. 438 pages. ISBN: 978-0-944359-35-8.
POCKET-SIZED (4.75" x 6.75") ENGLISH VERSION of the Psalms, translated from the Septuagint and the Greek Psalterion authorized by the Church of Greece. Septuagint and KJV numbering supplied. Six expanded Tables of Usage are furnished, as well as a general listing of the Psalms for daily services as provided in The Great Horologion. The new revised 2nd edition pocket-sized version is a sturdy dark brown Smyth-sewn case-bound book, with gold stamping, and a burgundy double-sided grosgrain ribbon marker. Black and red printing of text throughout, on high-opacity acid-free 80-pound creamy pages, in a very easy-to-read 11-point bold typeface for the Psalms. Words of God and others are set in quotation marks. Illustrated. Bookstore discounts available. $19.50. 296 pages. ISBN: 978-0-944359-34-1.
With so many Psalters available to the English reader, why select this one? The ecclesiastical English is most faithful to the original Greek, and diligently compared with the Psalterion of the Church of Greece, published by Apostolike Diakonia. This brand-new translation echoes the rhythms of the original Greek, which was faithful to the Hebrew idiom. The full-sized version with Commentary, reflecting the Orthodox perspective and interpretation of the spiritual insights of the holy Fathers from the East and West, promises to be an enriched reading experience that resonates with understanding of God’s word through the Psalmist David and others. Now you can read the Psalter and find answers to commonly asked textual and theological queries. This volume can help bring about a deeper relationship with God and reinforced faith in the Christ. This is a one-of-a-kind Psalter which borrows from the whole spectrum of patristic authority for a dependable and valuable resource, not only for Church readings, but also for devotional reading, Bible study, sermon preparation, and teaching. Therefore, come and explore the sacred writings with the champion holy Fathers of Orthodoxy so as to attain a better understanding of the wide range of prophetical, allegorical, mystical, and moralizing explanations of the verses. Even for those who do not know Greek or Hebrew, exegetical material found within this book gives critical analysis of key words, that is not overly technical, for both beginners and scholars alike.
