The Effect of Changing Theological and Ecclesiological Priorities in the Western Church on Eucharistic Liturgical Practice in the Twelfth Century

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2009 in the subject Theology - Historic Theology, Ecclesiastical History, grade: First, New College Durham, language: English, abstract: The twelfth century saw dramatic changes in the priorities of the Western Church and its doctrinal emphasis. As a result, this period saw much development in the theory and praxis of Christian theology, ecclesiology and, markedly, liturgy. As well as an increased liturgical centralisation and a vastly heightened emphasis on Eucharistic celebration, the twelfth century also saw a renewed attempt by the Church to include the laity in Eucharistic devotion, although this generally manifested itself in serving to further remove the laity from liturgical rites. The development of Eucharistic liturgy during this period was especially radical and far-reaching. Primarily, such developments concerned celebrative practicalities, although a shift in the Church's theological paradigm also led to critical theological changes. Furthermore, substantial proportions of the alterations to the Eucharistic rite made between 1100-1200 are still in use today, and continue to inform the practical theological expression of the liturgical relationship between Eucharistic rite and ceremony. The legacy of these developments thereby presents a considerable challenge for the contemporary Western Church not only in terms of its worshipping practice, but also its liturgical ethic.

Liturgical Space

This is the first comprehensive and up-to-date account of the internal arrangement of church buildings in Western Europe between 1500 and 2000, showing how these arrangements have met the liturgical needs of their respective denominations, Catholic and Protestant, over this period. In addition to a chapter looking at the general impact of the Reformation on church buildings, there are separate chapters on the churches of the Lutheran, Reformed, Anglican and Roman Catholic traditions between the mid-sixteenth and mid-nineteenth centuries, and on the ecclesiological movement of the nineteenth century and the liturgical movement of the twentieth century, both of which have impacted on all the churches of Western Europe over the past 150 years. The book is extensively illustrated with figures in the text and a series of plates and also contains comprehensive guides to both further reading and buildings to visit throughout Western Europe.

Worship in Transition

This much needed study defines and explains the very many changes in liturgy and worship that have swept Christian churches in the twentieth century. Students of liturgy and church history have hitherto had to search many different sources and tradition in order to gain an understanding of the revolution in worship that has occurred in the church throughout the world. In this work the authors highlight the interdependence of such developments in all the major churches - Orthodox, Roman Catholic, Anglican, Protestant, and Pentecostal - and in places as far apart as Africa, Europe, India, and North America. The result is a fascinating and wide-ranging study of a subject that touches the lives of all Christians.

The Eastern Catholic Churches

In recent years a new interest in the Eastern Churches has emerged in the Western Churches both Catholic and Protestant. The reader of this work will find answers to such fundamental questions as Who are Eastern Catholics?" "How did the Eastern Catholic Churches originate?" "Who are Orthodox Christians?" "How do Orthodox Christians differ from Eastern Catholics?" "Why do so many diverse Eastern Churches exist?" While it cannot answer all these questions thoroughly, this concise booklet can help interested laity, theological students, and ministers come to understand and respect Eastern Catholicism for its many contributions to the universal Catholic Church.

Church s Liturgy

The central theme of the book is the life-creating communication between God and human beings. Part 1 deals with God's invitation to humanity to enter the divine fullness of life. This is God's descent or "katabasis.

Church s Liturgy

This is the first volume published in English of a series of International Handbooks of Catholic Theology under the general editorship of Cardinal Christoph Sch÷nborn, Archbishop of Vienna.The book is a comprehensive introduction to the liturgy of the Roman Rite, set within a broader consideration of Christian liturgies Eastern and Western (Byzantine, Mozarabic, Ambrosian, and Reformed). The central theme of the book is the life-creating communication between God and human beings. Part 1 deals with God's invitation to humanity to enter the divine fullness of life. This is God's descent or "katabasis." Part II is concerned with humanity's acceptance of the invitation--the human ascent to God or "anabasis." Following this extensive treatment of the general nature of Christian liturgy are four sections devoted to particular subjects: the celebration of the Eucharist, the celebration of the sacraments, the liturgy of the hours and other services of the Word, and, finally, the liturgical year.

Re Forming the Liturgy

Christian worship is always undergoing change as it adapts to particular contexts and concerns. This collection of essays explores ways: 1) that liturgical change happened to address particular historical and theological concerns; 2) that worship and preaching are currently undergoing transition; and 3) that aspects of worship are in need of transformation in order to address primary issues of our time with a focus on environmental and ecological concerns. Spacial attention is paid to the role of the Sacraments and to preaching with an emphasis on the need to connect worship with daily life. These essays show readers ways that liturgical renewal worked in the past as well as offer a persuasive case for continual renewal that responds to key issues in our contemporary lives.

On the Historical Development of the Liturgy

Also significant are the hypotheses Baumstark proposes and the evidence he brings to bear on problems in liturgical history. In this annotated edition, Fritz West provides the first English translation of this work by Anton Baumstark.

On the Historical Development of the Liturgy

In 1921, Anton Baumstark delivered two lectures on the development of the Roman Rite to a gathering at the Abbey of Maria Laach. Abbot Ildefons Herwegen offered to publish those lectures, but Baumstark decided to write a book on the topic instead, which was published two years later as On the Historical Development of the Liturgy. It would be another sixteen years before he produced Comparative Liturgy, for which he is better known. Together the two books lay out Baumstark's liturgical methodology. Comparative Liturgy presents his method; On the Historical Development of the Liturgy offers his model. For nearly a century On the Historical Development of the Liturgy has been valued by specialists in the field of liturgical studies, both for its description of comparative liturgy and for the portrayal of patterns Baumstark discerns in liturgical development. Also significant are the hypotheses Baumstark proposes and the evidence he brings to bear on problems in liturgical history. In this annotated edition, Fritz West provides the first English translation of this work by Anton Baumstark. Trained in classical and oriental philology, Anton Baumstark (1872--1948) was prodigious as a scholar studying the literature, art, and liturgy of the whole church---Oriental, Eastern, and Western. Comparative liturgy, his method for studying the historical development of the liturgy as an organism, has had a lasting influence, notably on the liturgical study of the Christian East.
