A collection of over 30 essays by a team of international scholars, featuring children in the Church. The contributions range in time from the nativity to the 20th century. In their historical approach they are theological, theoretical, educational, economic, artistic and literary, liturgical and musical. They raise questions such as: when did childhood begin and end? How deep were the bonds of affection binding Christian parents and children at different periods? Was there, indeed, such a thing as childhood, or were children merely little adults? And how should Christian children be educated? The ways children worshipped, and their participation in the liturgy are recurrent themes. Discussion of childrens' musical contributions extends from the 14th-century choristers of Norwich and the Lichfield choristers of the Reformation period, to the 20th-century choirgirls of Salisbury Cathedral.
