First edition published in the year of our Lord 1918 (7th Year of the Republic of China) with the blessing of Bishop Innokenty Figurovsky.
This is a scan of a photocopy provided by Jeremias Norman who copied the Paschal (Easter) Service in Harbin with the permission of Fr Gregory Zhu. This text was found coated with dust underneath the reader stand, since Chinese was not allowed to be used in Church service. This is one of the first attempts in translating liturgical texts into spoken Chinese. This electronic edition is made freely available especially for those who are interested in making use of this as a reference to produce a more modern Chinese edition. If you are interested in transcribing the scanned image into text whether manually or via Chinese OCR, or in helping to translate into a modern Chinese edition, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
