From Age to Age: How Christians Have Celebrated the Eucharist

by Foley, Edward

Condition: New

Father Anthony Ruff, OSB, describes this book in these words: "This is an excellent historical survey of the development of the Christian celebration, with very helpful treatment of developments in architecture, music, books, vessels and eucharistic theology in each major era. Running alongside the text are well-chosen quotations, photographs, diagrams, and musical examples. Each chapter ends with a delightful story, suggesting what it must have been like for real people who celebrated the Eucharist. This second, revised edition is nearly twice as long as the original. Readers will welcome the addition of eucharistic theology to each chapter, as well as expansion of the quotations and accompanying material. This will be an indispensable text for teachers and students. Congratulations to the author for this achievement. Very highly recommended!" Professor Teresa Berger says about this book: "What a rich feast of insight, knowledge, and information about eucharistic history and practice through the centuries! The liturgical tradition--in both its vibrant diversity and its lively engagement with material reality, the visual arts, music and architecture--truly comes alive in this volume. From Age to Age is a must for anyone interested in how Christians have celebrated the sacrament of God's real presence in ever-changing contexts."
