- We can order this
Originally published in 1910, this book contains a study of the Eucharistic liturgy used by the Church in the first three hundred years of its existence. Woolley carefully examines the origins and development of the proanaphora and anaphora, and includes in an appendix the original Greek, Coptic, Ethiopic or Latin texts of many of the ancient witnesses of liturgical practice along with an English translation for texts not in Latin or Greek. This book will be of great value to anyone with an interest in the history of Christian liturgy from 'those centuries in which the Church was more in touch than she ever has been since with the general life and the every day needs of her members'.
