Product Description

Since its first publication in 1978 The Study of the Liturgy has come to be recognized as an indispensible resource for all those involved in the study, the planning celebration of the liturgy. The last two decades has been a period of producing liturgies. A developing ecumenical sense has encouraged many churches to assimilate features of other traditions. This updated version takes account of the recent changes. The ecumenical character is maintained among the authors which include fifteen Anglicans, six Roman Catholics, three Methodists, and one Orthodox.

Publisher's Description

Completely revised to incorporate new scholarship and many important developments in liturgical renewal, this standard text remains an essential tool for students of theology and liturgy. It treats the development of the liturgy historically, beginning with Jewish antecedents, then covering the New Testament, Patristic, Medieval, and Reformation periods, and concluding with the increasing interest in liturgy in all churches today. The text deals definitively with the five central rites of Christian worship: Initiation, the Eucharist, Ordination, the Daily Office, and the Calendar. A special section on liturgical settings examines in detail the historical importance of music and singing in the liturgy and the role of hymnody in Christian worship. Reflecting the continuing trend towards ecumenism, the editors represent the Anglican, Roman Catholic, and Protestant traditions, while the Orthodox tradition is represented by the team of contributors, which includes many of the best-known liturgical scholars.
