Joint Liturgical Studies offers a valuable contribution to the study of liturgy. Each issue considers a particular aspect of liturgical development, such as the origins of the Roman rite, Anglican Orders, welcoming the Baptised, and Anglican Missals. It is aimed at all with an academic interest in worship.
It is published twice a year in partnership with the Alcuin Club, which promotes the study of Christian liturgy, and the Group for Renewal of Worship (GROW).
'Colin Buchanan has produced an ideal text book to place in the hands of students. It assembles all the material relevant to liturgy from Justin's writings ... The student is, in fact, provided with all that is needed for the study of these texts, except for the Greek text itself ... The whole study will not only be of use to students, but will also serve to refresh and clarify the acquaintance of liturgical scholars with this important but in many ways enigmatic patristic text, and to set it in the context of contemporary historical and liturgical study.'
