From Age to Age: How Christians Have Celebrated the Eucharist

by Foley, Edward

Condition: New

In this book, the author details the history of the Christian Eucharist, the Mass, from its beginnings in Jewish liturgy to the present. Father Foley, OFM, Cap., does not deal just with the texts of the Mass; he also provides extensive commentary on architecture, music, and sacred vessels. This book is profusely illustrated with drawings, maps, music, and photographs. The book concludes with an extensive glossary, a chapter-by-chapter bibliography, and a 19-page index. Such documentation bears witness to the Father Foley's scholarship and reliability.

The author holds a Ph.D. in liturgical studies from the University of Notre Dame, from the early 1970s. His work, as you would expect, is well researched and theologically oriented. Father Foley also has done graduate work in music and so is especially sensitive to this dimension of Christian celebration. He is currently professor of liturgy and music at the Catholic Theological Union (CTU) in Chicago.

Includes bibliographical references and index.
