Product Description

One of the most influential works in the debate over the concept and definitions of liturgical theology, Context and Text by Monsignor Kevin W. Irwin is now available in a completely rewritten, new edition.

In light of the historical, theological, and pastoral mandates of the Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, Context and Text is both a proposal for and an example of an investigation of the Church's liturgical praxis from a liturgical-theological perspective. This second edition, which includes an expanded introduction, covers:

  • new liturgical and ecclesial contexts resulting from newly promulgated liturgies
  • further research in method for liturgical studies
  • consideration for changes in the cultural contexts in which people celebrate the liturgy

Besides brand-new chapters on time and sacramentality, and additions to the chapter on the arts, this edition also considers the ongoing 'texts and contexts' of the liturgy as always a new event in the life and ongoing discussion of liturgical theology within Christianity.

Editorial Reviews

"This is a thorough reworking of an important book. The inclusion of scholarship, church teachings, revised translations and ecumenical voices from the past twenty-five years, added to an already substantial base of church tradition, makes this a significant revision. The addition of examples from liturgical history and the recently reformed euchology enhances and fleshes out key principles and premises. In an era when the blogosphere coverage of the liturgy often reflects ideology, division, and superficiality, this book lays out the terrain in a serene and careful manner. It is a book that deserves deep reflection and prayer."
Abbot Jeremy Driscoll, OSB, Mount Angel Abbey and Seminary

"This new edition of the book covers the same ground as one would expect, but much more. Irwin ends up with a series of constructive invitations, as it were, not only for liturgical theologians but for all Christians made by the liturgy: Be honest, be attentive, be open, be grateful, be hopeful.&#39; This new edition of Kevin Irwin&#39;s <I>Context and Text</I> is of enormous value in helping us to respond to these invitations and so to worship more fruitfully. I cannot recommend it highly enough.&#34; <DIV>Owen F. Cummings, Academic Dean and Regents&#39; Professor of Theology, Mount Angel Seminary</DIV> <br /><br /><DIV>&#34;As to be expected, Kevin Irwin circles an almost overwhelming array of topics in liturgy around the ever present, ever new, dance between liturgy and theology. Is it liturgy shaping theology or theology shaping liturgy? It is these two, plus endless nuances of how the two are actually different expressions of the same reality-expressing and creating meaning. Structurally this large book is remarkably clear, introducing each area with a manageable overview before launching into the concepts further enfleshed by case studies of euchology, Scripture texts, or feasts and seasons of the liturgical year. The augmented section on time and the arts (liturgical ministry, music, and architecture) simply concretizes in new and engaging ways the breadth of whattext' means, and raises new questions about liturgical presiding as art, about music as ministerial practice, and about the context of space and place as full participant in the liturgical act."
Lizette Larson-Miller, Huron-Lawson Chair in Theology, Huron University College, Ontario, Canada
