” I highly recommend the very fine Orthodox Wiki article on the Paschalion. If you need a quick answer, here’s how I put it: It’s supposed to be on the first Sunday after the first full moon after the spring equinox.

But many centuries ago, we devised predictive mathematical cycles that predicted when the equinox and full moon would be. That’s about as short as I can make it and still do some justice to the reality.

Nevertheless, since at least the 12th century it has been widely believed that Christian Pascha is required always to follow, and never coincide with, the first day of Passover, which was by then being celebrated on Nisan 15 in the Jewish calendar (that is, on the evening of the 14th day of the lunar month).

By the 12th century the errors in the Julian calendar’s equinoctial date and age of the moon had accumulated to the degree that Pascha did, in fact, always follow Jewish Nisan 15.

This state of affairs continues to the present day, even though the Jewish calendar suffers from a slight solar drift of its own, because the Julian calendar’s errors accumulate more rapidly than the Jewish calendar’s.

The 12th century canonist Joannes Zonaras seems to have been the first to state the principle that Pascha must always follow Jewish Nisan 15, so the principle is called the “Zonaras Proviso” after him.

On the Revised Julian calendar, no, there is no Kyriopascha.

So it depends on which “New Calendar” you’re referring to. Just because they’re Orthodox (i.e., from our Orthodox community) doesn’t mean they’re really Orthodox (i.e., the truth).

(UPDATE: It looks like those Estonian parishes have switched back.) (And, if one wants to include the Oriental Orthodox in this picture, it should be noted that most Armenians and the Malankara church in India celebrate according to the Gregorian Paschalion, as well.

The Coptic, Armenian (Jerusalem Patriarchate), Syriac, Ethiopian and Eritrean churches do not, however.) And here’s our final Orthodox Paschal urban legend: “What is Kyriopascha? It’s when the Annunciation (March 25) and Pascha coincide.

(See this list of dates to check for yourself.) Now, you might say that Pascha only has to follow the first day of Passover.

Okay, but what about 2002, 2003, 2006, 2009, 2012, 2013, 2015, 2018, 2019, 20? Well, those are all recent and upcoming years in which Western Easter follows the first day of Passover and yet the Orthodox Pascha is still at least a week later.
