Product Description

Nathan Mitchell has written this book to enrich the Church's understanding of the many theologies and popular customs that have attached themselves to the eucharist over the last two thousand years. Drawing references from original texts and socio-cultural history, he presents the many ways ordinary Christians found of ritualizing what faith told them was true after communion was disengaged from the Holy Meal: Christ is present in the bread and wine of the Supper.

Publisher's Description

In the first part of this book, Father Mitchell traces the evolution within the Roman Catholic tradition of the cult of the Eucharist outside Mass, a change from holy meal to ritual drama that implied significant alterations of content, meaning, and interpretation.

The second section comments on the mandates of Vatican Council II whose call to a return to proper praxis necessitated changes in then current pastoral practice and theological interpretation.
