And you shall sleep restful nights" (St. Ephraim the Syrian).

εις πολλά έτη, Δέσποτα!

Vassa Larin,
a nun of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia, has recently published her doctoral dissertation on the Byzantine hierarchical liturgy. 

Her thesis was written at the Pontifical Oriental Institute in Rome under the great Robert Taft. (She tells of her background, and work with Taft, in this informative and important interview here.) 

Her work, published as part of the Orientalia Christiana Analecta series, appears in print as The Byzantine Hierarchal Divine Liturgy in Arsenij Suxanov’s Proskinitarij [=OCA 286] (Rome: PIO, 2010), 283pp. Details of this book, the series, and earlier works, may be obtained here.
