Publisher's Description

This important new collection of essays on a topic of vital importance is by a group of scholars from ten countries, from a wide range of Christian traditions, East and West, and from various academic disciplines.What has happened to sacramentality in an age which is on the one hand visual and on the other culturally cast adrift from the traditional symbolic universe in which sacramental theology was naturally at home? This book is not just confined to a discussion of Eucharistic theology. It examines both the historical roots of sacramentality, the concept of a sacral person, ways in which sacramentality may be re-envisioned and the flourishing roday of churches of a largely non-sacramental style in an age which is increasingly visual rather than verbal.The vital importance of the subject of this book is confirmed by the distinction of the contributors--David Brown (Professor of Theology at Durham University), Timothy Jenkins (Cambridge), Bishop Geoffrey Rowell (Oxford), Jeremy Begbie (St. Andrews and Cambridge), Ann Loades (Durham), David N. Power (Catholic University of America), Sven-Erik Brodd (Uppsala), Peter Bouteneff (St. Vladimir's Seminary, New York) and Susan A. Ross (Loyola University, Chicago).
