The Idea of ‘The Church’ in the Primitive Liturgies


SPCK 1939

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


In this volume, Dix analyzes liturgical practices throughout the ancient church and explores their biblical and patristic dimensions. He provides an extensively patristic defense for many of the church’s sacraments (devoting much of this short treatise to the Eucharist and the liturgy surrounding the Eucharist in the church), as well as the liturgies of worship, and shows how the Church has evolved in its understanding of liturgical practice over time.
