Title: Formazione della struttura dell'ufficio del sabato di Lazzaro nella tradizione cattedrale di Gerusalemme
Authors: Shurgaia, Gaga

Abstract: Lazarus Saturday is one of the most importante Christian feasts, in which the idea of the universal resurrection from the dead is expressed. This idea, formed over the course of centuries, was enriched by various naunces in the Christian mystery. This develpment was reflected in the liturgy. The literary sources of the liturgy of Jerusalem - the "Diary" of Egeria, the Armenian lectionaries, the Georgian typika, and the Greek tropologion of the Anastasis - point out the origins and the evolution of the ordo of Lazarus Saturday in the liturgical tradition of the Holy City. However, the "Diary" is not explicit regarding certain aspects of the celebration of the feast: the content of the vigil, the inclusion of Matins, or the character of the rite that takes place at the Lazarium. Although later sources shed light on some of these questions, they give rise to other problems. The evolution of the liturgy of Lazarus Saturday is as much a result of changes in Jerusalem's architecture and topography, as it is a result of the developing interpretation of the theological significance of the feast
