About this site
This site is a tribute to our most revered father, great poet and theologian Saint Nerses IV the Gracious “Shnorhali”. These pages present and honour the significance and the impact of St. Nerses’ theological work οn the Christian world.
“I Confess With Faith” prayer, “Havadov Khosdovanim” in Armenian, is one of his most prominent works, a collection of 24 prayers, one for each hour of the day. It is one of his most touching and inspiring prayers. It has been translated so far in more than 36 languages.
This site comprises a vast collection of translations derived from several different sources. Pages of this site were created on material taken directly from freely provided sources and publications. As long as no translation into Modern Greek has been recorded so far, it has been a great opportunity and honour for me to translate and publish through this site the “Havadov Khosdovanim” prayer translated into Modern contemporary Greek.
This is a site created, published and supported through my personal efforts. I am an individual with no connections to any organisations, institutions or any commercial activity. This is an independent website, running on a nonprofit basis, designated only for religious and educational purposes. All material published on these pages is presented in downloable format, so as to become accessible for everyone, as long as its recipients will always respect the copyright and intellectual property rights related to this content.
