But what about the texts that don’t show up in the Daily Office Lectionary?

Within our (Episcopal) tradition the Daily Office is the natural starting-point, and half a loaf is much better than no loaf. Full stop.

But its schedule of readings (lectionary) leaves out large chunks of the Old Testament, most notably, all of Song of Songs.

The attached PDF file presents one way the lectionary can be supplemented to achieve continuous readings of all the books in the pre-Reformation western canon within a two-year cycle.

Suggestions for improvement welcome!

    Thank you for this! It looks so much more accessible than the charts I’ve seen. But when you mention page numbers, what page numbers are those? (What book, I mean)…
    Thanks again!
