Definitions for "Kanon"
a hymn that consists most often of eight or nine, and more rarely, of four, three or two odes, pertaining to the occasion or saint that is being commemorated. Each ode consists of several stanzas or troparia; in the practice of the Russian Church, the first of these troparia, the heirmos, is sung, while the others are usually read. Each of the nine odes is patterned after a canticle from the Holy Scriptures, which relates to an Old Testament event that served as a type of a New Testament event. Full k.'s, as a rule, had nine odes, but the second ode soon fell from use. An incomplete k. is termed a tetraodion, triodion, or diodion, depending on whether it consists of four, three, or two odes.
