"In these companion volumes of essays, Jewish and Christian liturgical scholars examine, from historical, theological, and aesthetic perspectives, the practices and intricate interrelationships of Passover and Easter. Several essays lament the antisemitism that has infected the Easter liturgy, and one-Israel Yuval's 'Easter and Passover as Early Jewish-Christian Dialogue'-pushes beyond the oft-told tale of Jewish-Christian enmity to explore ways the development of worship patterns of the two faiths have influenced one another. Both volumes are required purchases for libraries supporting liturgical studies. Volume 5 would also be a good choice for broader collections in the history of Judaism and Christianity." -Choice

For those interested in knowing more about the foundations of their own worship, Paul F. Bradshaw provides in Early Christian Worship a sound introduction to worship in the first four centuries of the Church. Bradshaw not only describes what rites Christians actually performed during this period but also explains why they acted as they did. He answers such questions as "Why did they choose some patterns instead of others?" "What did they understand themselves to be doing in their worship?" "What effect did all this have on developing Christian ideas, and what effect did the ideas in turn have on the worship?" Chapters under Christian Initiation are ?Beginnings,? ?Syria and Egypt," ?Rome and North Africa,? ?The Fourth-Century Synthesis,? and ?From Adult to Infant Baptism.? Chapters under Eucharist are ?Communion: The Sacred Meal,? ?Anamnesis and Epiclesis: The Eucharistic Prayer,? ??The Bloodless Sacrifice,?? ?Holy Food,? and ??Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence.??

A companion to Prayers of the Eucharist: Early and Reformed

The Churches of the East possess a sometimes bewildering array of Eucharistic prayers. Essays on Early Eastern Eucharistic Prayer offers a guide to the exploration of the principal prayers, and presents in a simple and succinct manner the current scholarship on the origins, development, and relationship of these particular prayers to other ancient prayers.

As well as summarizing the state of research and suggesting directions for future study, these essays explain the history of these prayers, their relationship to one another, and reveal how and why early Christian prayers developed as they did. In this way Essays on Early Eastern Eucharistic Prayers produces a clear picture of the way early Eucharistic prayers emerged and grew in the Eastern Churches.

Essays on Early Eastern Eucharistic Prayers serves as a companion to - and provides an extended commentary on the texts of early eastern Eucharistic prayers that are published in R. C. D. Jasper and G. J. Cuming's Prayers of the Eucharist: Early and Reformed. Essays on Early Eastern Eucharistic Prayers also offers more detail than is available in the introductions to either text or in other general histories of liturgy or early liturgical practice.
