Comment on the current quality and some propositions for an elaboration[edit]

This article, although very important, could be commented in a similar way as the article Acolouthia had been already commented on its talk page. It is obviously a Catholic Orthodox point of view with very problematic definitions which do not really help a reader, who looks for some basic informations about the Byzantine hymn book sticherarion. I corrected the most problematic definitions, but the article is still a stub and needs to be restructured entirely.

Here I offer some keywords, which might help courageous contributors:

  • the Studites reform (9th century) and the later book of the early sticherarion with Paleobyzantine Notation, the separation of the book Octoechos (12th century)
  • the Papadic reform and the revised editions of Middle Byzantine Sticheraria with Octoechos signatures (14th-18th century)
  • the Sticherarion kalophonikon and the stichera kalophonika and anagrammatismoi (14th-18th century)
  • the reform of the New Method, its definition of a sticheraric melos between Anastasimatarion (Sl. Voskresnik) and Anthologia tis leitourgias (Sl. Psaltiken Liturgija), and its chant books Doxastarion and Mathematarion (18th-21th century)

Not only liturgical, but also musicological competences are required. Nevertheless, please feel welcome. Platonykiss (talk) 23:07, 6 September 2012 (UTC)
