orthros definition

  • noun:
    • The divine company or solution at dawn associated with Orthodox Christian Church.
    • In the Gr. Ch., one of the canonical hours, corresponding to the Western lauds, but confounded by some Western writers, through a mistaken inference from the meaning of the word (‘dawn’), with matins. Orthros is a more elaborate office than lauds.
