The author traces the origin of the Eucharist back to the Jewish meal prayers, orberakoth, for it is here that he sees its ancestry. This daring but well-documented thesis is proposed here for the first time in English.

About the Author:

Rev. Louis Bouyer (1913-2004) was a member of the French Oratory and one of the most respected and versatile Catholic scholars and theologians of the twentieth century. He is the author of many books, including Liturgical Piety (University of Notre Dame Press, 1973). In addition to his many writings, Bouyer lectured widely across Europe and America.
 
 

Review:

". . . A very rich history of the 'Canon' of the Eucharistic celebration from the beginnings down to the present. Highly recommended." 
  (Review for Religious)

"Father Bouyer . . .  spent more than twenty years writing this book. It is a detailed history of the Christian Eucharistic formularies. He begins with a thorough analysis of the Jewish meal prayers, the berakoth, to which he traces the origins of the eucharistic rite, and ends with the recent addition of new eucharistic prayers to the Roman rite. He also includes the history of the various forms of the early Christian liturgies, of the Byzantine, Gallican, and Mozarabic Eucharists, of the changes introduced during the Reformation, and of developments in the Anglican, Lutheran, and Reformed traditions."  (Theology Digest)

"The object of Fr. Bouyer's impressive study is the development or, as he calls it, the 'progressive unfolding' of the Christian eucharist and, more precisely, of the 'eucharistic prayer' or anaphora. . . . As a study in the history of the anaphora, Bouyer's book contains extremely valuable materials—and in English—and thought-provoking discussions of all of them. No student can consider the history and the meaning of the eucharistic prayer without digging in this treatise."

Book Description University of Notre Dame Press July 1989, 1989. Paper Back. Condition: New. Bouyer's famous study of the origin and development of the Eucharist, specifically that section of the liturgy known as the Canon or the Anaphora, from its Jewish roots through its various Eastern and Western forms down to the present, stands with Dix'sThe Shape of the Liturgy and The Mass of the Roman Rite as one of the three great works of liturgical history this century. Bouyer surveys a formidable selection of eucharistic prayers, quoting many verbatim, and includes and examines examples from the Anglican and other Protestant liturgical traditions as well. CONTENTS: Theologies on the Eucharist and Theology of the Eucharist - Jewish Liturgy and Christian Liturgy - The Word of God and the Berakah - The Jewish Berakoth - From the Jewish Berakah to the Christian Eucharist - The Patristic Eucharist and the Vestiges of the Primitive Eucharist - The Alexandrian and Roman Eucharists - The West Syrian Liturgy: The Apostolic Constitutions and the Liturgy of St. James - The Classical Form of the Byzantine Eucharist - The Gallican and Mozarabic Eucharist - The Middle Ages: Development and Deformation - Modern Times: Decomposition and Reformation - The Catholic Eucharist Renewed. 484 pp. Seller Inventory # 142952
