Publisher's Description

Dom Jeremy Driscoll offers a fresh approach both to theology and to the eucharistic celebration itself. He sets forth and develops here a method for the tasks of academic theology inspired by the eucharistic rite. There are studies of the foundational role of the liturgy for conceiving the identity of fundamental theology; a proposal for developing a curriculum on the basis of the shape of the eucharistic rite; historical studies on the relationship between liturgy and doctrine; and suggestions for catechesis, preaching and eucharistic adoration. Dom Jeremy writes:' for virtually all of my life as a monk and a theologian, and already from the time when I was a student, have found ongoing inspiration for my work in the regular celebration of the eucharist. To come back to it again and again, no matter from what particular theme I may have been studying, was to enter a context in which whatever I had learned was secured and deepened at a new level, a context in which I could enter the adoration that helped me express my love for what I was learning. To celebrate eucharist often confirmed what I had learned - not directly but by means of signs, symbols, ritual action, and a different kind of language . . .' Jeremy Driscoll was born in Moscow, Idaho, USA and has been a Benedictine monk of Mount Angel Abbey in Oregon since 1973. Author of three books and fifteen scholarly articles on Evagrius Ponticus and related aspects of Egyptian monasticism, he has also written widely on liturgical questions. He teaches at Mount Angel Seminary and at the Pontifical Atheneum of Saint' Anselmo in Rome.
