From age to age you gather a people to yourself, so that from east to west a perfect offering may be made to the glory of your name."
Eucharist is the fullest expression of our life with God, a life we share with Christians throughout the ages. It is also a sensory experience, engaging us in the sights and sounds, tastes and touch of the worship. Edward Foley's revised and expanded From Age to Age draws readers into that sensory experience. He traces the development of Christian Eucharist from its Jewish roots to our own time. In addition to exploring the architecture, music, books, and vessels that contributed to each period's liturgical expressions, this edition introduces readers to the theology of each age as well as the historical and cultural contexts that shaped the Eucharist. Richly illustrated with numerous images and quotations from period texts, this book is a feast for the mind and eye. Through many examples of the visual and auditory symbols that are central to Eucharist, readers will discover how Christian worship is embodied worship that from age to age gives glory to God and sanctifies people.
Edward Foley, Capuchin, PhD, is Professor of Liturgy and Music and founding Director of the Ecumenical Doctor of Ministry Program at Catholic Theological Union. A prolific author, he is coeditor of and contributor to a commentary on the General Instruction of the RomanMissal (Liturgical Press, 2008) and coauthor ofMighty Stories, Dangerous Rituals: The Intersection of Worship and Pastoral Care (Jossey-Bass, 1998)."
With extraordinary detail helped by numerous artistic images and diagrams, maps and charts, this revised edition of From Age to Age offers a rich presentation of how the Christian Eucharist has evolved over the centuries. Ecumenical in scope and written in a very readable style, Edward Foleys masterful work deserves a wide readership within the churches. - Keith F. Pecklers, SJ, Professor of Liturgy, Pontifical Gregorian University Professor of Liturgical History, Pontifical Liturgical Institute, Rome
What a rich feast of insight, knowledge, and information about eucharistic history and practice through the centuries! The liturgical traditionin both its vibrant diversity and its lively engagement with material reality, the visual arts, music, and architecturetruly comes alive in this volume. From Age to Age is a must for anyone interested in how Christians have celebrated the sacrament of Gods real presence in ever changing contexts. - Professor Teresa Berger, Yale ISM & Divinity School, New Haven, Connecticut
This is an excellent historical survey of the development of the eucharistic celebration, with very helpful treatment of developments in architecture, music, books, vessels, and eucharistic theology in each major era. Running alongside the text are well-chosen quotations, photographs, diagrams, and musical examples. Each chapter ends with a delightful story suggesting what it must have been like for real people who celebrated the eucharist. This second revised edition is nearly twice as long as the original, and readers will welcome the addition of eucharistic theology to each chapter, as well as the expansion of the quotations and accompanying material. This will be an indispensable text on the eucharist for teachers and students. Congratulations to the author for this achievementvery highly recommended! - Fr. Anthony Ruff, OSB, Associate Professor of Liturgy and Liturgical Music, Saint John's University and School of Theology Seminary, Collegeville, Minnesota
