Requiem / μνημόσυνο correct explanation

Postby someguy » Sun 31 March 2019 8:17 am


Tried searching online but a couldn't find anything on the understanding of requiem/μνημόσυνο and its goal and roots etc like which ecumenical council established it...

Also I know that the ancient orthodox dogma does not have purgatory only heaven/hell and no one escape the judgment seat of Christ and where their soul ends up... so what does a requiem/μνημόσυνο aim to achieve?

Thanks as always
