Liturgy is an essential part of the life of a monastery, and we can hardly feel an interest for the White Monastery without being interested in its liturgical life as well. Unfortunately little remains known about this subject because the liturgical manuscripts, as well as all other manuscripts of this library, have been dismembered, and a liturgical document is interesting only if complete since the structure of the service concerns us more than its contents, which are usually known from elsewhere. This chapter describes the priests' and deacons' books, the liturgical day in the White Monastery, and the contents of the divine service.

Keywords:   White Monastery, liturgical life, priests, deacons, divine service
