Gabriel's method is instructive, being set forth identically in thetwo manuscripts that contain parts of the Ordo... He studied anumber of extant older ordos, lists of daily offices and feasts,comparing them and collating a single ordo that integrated themaximum substance of their original elements. On Sunday, 3 May1411, at the Church of ABU SAYFAYN in Old Cairo, he assembled the priests, notables, and deacons of the entire Christian communityand submitted the new Ordo to them. The assembly gave itsunanimous approval to this Ordo and the patriarch consequentlydecreed its exclusive use in all Coptic churches."
