Over the past century, the liturgy has been a flashpoint of theological interest. Few scholars, however, have examined what St. Thomas Aquinas has to say about the Liturgy. In this concise volume, David Berger ably takes on this task. A member of the Pontifical Academy of St. Thomas, Berger approaches his theme from a perspective in accord with Cardinal Ratzingers recent call for a "reform of the reform." Drawing together St. Thomas's life and theology, Berger illumines the role in St. Thomas's theology of his youthful training at the Benedictine monastery of Monte Cassino and his devotion to the Eucharist. Rightly renowned for his articulation of the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist by transubstantiation, St. Thomas deserves also to be regarded as a master of liturgics. Berger demonstrates that liturgy belongs to the heart of St. Thomas's speculative theological syntheses: For St. Thomas, lex orandi truly is lex credendi. As Berger shows, St. Thomas provides a supremely incamational view of the Christian liturgy, in which man. As a body-soul unity, is drawn with the angels into Christ's redemptive sacrifice.

About the Author:

David Berger is co-founder and editor-in-chief of the German periodical "Doctor Angelicus." A corresponding member of the Pontifical Academy of St. Thomas Aquinas, he has published articles in such journals as "Angelicum," "Divinitas," and "Gregorianum." He is author of, among other books, "Thomismus" (2001), "Thomas von Aquin begegnen" (2002), and most recently "Thomas von Aquins Summa theologiae" (2004).

Review:

"An 'analectic' reading of Thomas's intellectual vision as characterized by deliberate balance, comprehensiveness, and interconnection." -- Aidan Nichols, OP, in The Thomist

"Scholarly and straight-shooting, this ably and succinctly demonstrates Thomas's profound grasp of the nature of the Liturgy." -- Dom Alcuin Reid, OSB, author of "The Organic Development of the Liturgy"

"This book should be on the bookshelves of every priest and seminarian in the English-speaking world." -- Father John Saward, International Theological Institute, Gaming, Austria
