Βιβλίον κοινής προσευχής και τελέσεως των Μυστηρίων και άλλων θεσμών και τελετών της Εκκλησίας, κατά την συνήθειαν της Εκκλησίας της Αγγλίας : συν τω ψαλτηρίω ήτοι τοις ψαλμοίς Δαβίδ στιχθείσι καθώς ορίζονται ίνα ψάλλωνται ή αναγιγνώσκωνται εν τη Εκκλησία; και τύποις και τάξις γινομένη επί καταστάσει, χειροτονία και καθιερώσει Επισκόπων, Πρεσβυτέρων, και Διακόνων.
The Book of Common Prayer in Greek
London: Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, 1923.

Title Randall Davidson

it was prepared with the primary intention of providing religious knowledge about Anglican liturgical practice for Greek-speaking Orthodox Christians. The State Prayers are for Queen Victoria. Other translations of Anglican liturgy into Greek are discussed in William Muss-Arnolt's Book of Common Prayer among the Nations of the World (1914).

Greek Version of the Prayer Book.

The Greek translation of the Prayer book adds another to the long list of services—among them the inception of the Christian East in 1920—rendered to our movement by the S.P.C.K., which kindly placed a couple of dozen copies at our disposal for circulation in the Near East. Among those that have written enthusiastic acknowledgments are the Œcumenical Patriarch Gregory, who begs that Russian, Serb, Roumanian and Arab versions should also be prepared; the Patriarch Meletios, who wrote cheerily from his solitary hospice of Mylopotamos at Mount Athos; the Patriarch Damianos, the Archbishop of Cyprus, who alone signs in purple ink—why will not the British Government snub the Quai d'Orsay and restore the island to its Motherland?—Professor Ispir of Bucharest who, by the way, was in England in March for the World Alliance; the Metropolitan Chrysostom of Athens, and the Metropolitan of Durazzo, a stout Constantinople friend of the Anglo-Orthodox entente.

Ὑψηλῆς ἡγούμεθα σπουδαιότητος τὴν ὕπαρξιν ἀποχρώσης Ἑλληνικῆς μεταφράοσεως τοῦ ΒΙΒΛΙΟΝ ΚΟΙΝΗΣ ΠΡΟΣΕΥΧΗΣ, ΚΑΙ ΤΕΛΕΣΕΩΣ ΤΩΝ ΜΥΣΤΗΡΙΩΝ, ΚΑΙ ΑΛΛΩΝ ΘΕΣΜΩΝ ΚΑΙ ΤΕΛΕΤΩΝ ΤΗΣ ΕΚΚΛΗΣΙΑΣ, ΚΑΤΑ ΤΗΝ ΣΥΝΘΕΙΑΝ ΤΕΣ ΕΚΚΛΕΣΙΑΣ ΤΕΣ ΑΓΓΛΙΑΣ.

Εὐκταῖον οὖν ἐστιν ὅπως ἡ σπουδὴ αὕτη, τῇ τοῦ Θεοῦ εὐλογίᾳ, ᾗ ὅσον ἔνεστιν ἀκριβής τε καὶ καρποφόρος. Δι᾽ ὃ καὶ ἐξ ὅλης καρδίας εὐχόμεθα, ἵνα ὁ παρὼν τόμος, ἔργον ὤν, ὡς πιστεύομεν, λιπαρᾶς μαθήσεως, ἐν πᾶσιν εὐοδωθῇ.
