Complete with an appendix including Jewish texts and early Eucharistic Prayers, abbreviations, bibliography, and notes, The Celebration of the Eucharist is a comprehensive source for those who have an interest in the theology of the Eucharist in the course of history.Chapters are Old Testament Sacrifices and Ritual Meal, The Origin of the Christian Eucharist, From the Jewish Liturgy to the Christian Eucharist, Primitive Anaphoras: From the Didache to the Mystical Eucharist, Primitive Anaphoras: Developments of the Eucharistic Liturgy, Thematic Developments in the Eucharistic Liturgy, The Early Patristic Period, Tertullian and Cyprian, The Fourth Century, The Early Middle Ages, The Scholastic High Middle Ages, The Eucharist and the Relics of the Saints, The Reformation and the Council of Trent, The Liturgical Reform of Vatican Council II, The Implementation of the Liturgical Reform, The Parts of the Eucharistic Prayer, and The Last Supper and the Church's Eucharist.Enrico Mazza is professor of liturgical history at the Universita Cattolica del Sacro Cuore in Milan.
