Resurrection of the Lord 2024

Christ is risen! He is risen indeed!

(British Library, Ms. Additional 7170, f. 156v (Syria(?), ca. 1220))

This year, Eastertide begins on May 5th for Orthodox christians, a five week difference with the Western Easter date (the largest possible difference). During the next forty days (until Ascension) the church celebrates the Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.
