Product Description

Worship in the Early Church is a four-volume collection of excerpts from early Christian writings which describe the liturgical practices of the Eastern and Western Churches, from its Jewish beginnings through the end of the sixth century. This thoroughly documented collection includes doctrinal and historical treatises, scriptural commentaries, sermons, letters, synodal legislation, early church orders, monastic rules, baptismal as well as funeral epigrams. Each of the major selections is preceded by a short introduction which includes further background material such as dates and country of origin. A bibliography of pertinent periodical and liturgical literature is given, in addition to a further bibliography referencing standard encyclopedias of religion and manuals of patrology.
CD-ROM Includes the content from each volume of the set in one convenient PDF file.
