Menaea (or Μεναῖον), apart of the liturgy of the Eastern Church, containing all the changeable parts of the services used for the festival days of the Christian year. It is usually arranged in twelve volumes, one for every month, but the whole is sometimes compressed into three volumes. The Mencea' f the Eastern Church nearly answers to the Breviary of the Western Church, omitting, however, some portions of the services which the latter contains, and inserting others which are not in it. See Zacharius, Bibliotheca Rit.; Neale, Eastern Church, p. 829. SEE BREVIARY.
