Publisher's Description

Today there is a rising tide of interest in worship and a renewed study of the church's heritage of liturgy. But as students quickly learn, there are numerous terms, texts and traditions for which regular dictionaries and even theological dictionaries are no help. The Pocket Dictionary of Liturgy and Worship is a quick-reference guide for students engaged in readings and lectures as well as for leaders of worship and liturgy who want to renew, check or expand their knowledge. The range of topics includes
  • practices, such as altar call and benediction
  • rites, such as baptism and Eucharist
  • symbols, such as incense and dove
  • texts, such as Apostolic Constitutions and Book of Common Prayer
  • gestures, such as kneeling and sign of the cross
  • vestments, such as alb and robe
  • musical terms, such as a cappella and Agnus Dei
  • observances, such as All Saints' Day and Easter
  • architectural features, such as apse and sacristy
