Sinaxarium or Synaxarion

A book that includes short accounts on the lives of the saints or feasts and fastings arranged according to the Coptic calender.
The Sinaxarium is usually read after reading the "Acts."
The Sinaxarium is not to be read during the 50 days following the Lord's resurrection, for during this period we should be only concerned with the Lord's resurrection.
