ORTHODOX LENT, HOLY WEEK AND EASTER: LITURGICAL TEXTS WITH COMMENTARY

OF WATER AND THE SPIRIT: A LITURGICAL STUDY OF BAPTISM

Author: ALEXANDER SCHMEMANN #: 10571
In this study of the Orthodox understanding of Christian initiation, the rites of baptism and chrismation, Fr. Schmemann invites us to “rediscover” baptism. He penetrates the Church`s rubrics and rituals, often dismissed as out-of-date or merely quaint — to reveal their inner content: a message of man`s entrance into new life, into the Church and into the Kingdom. The result is a powerful statement of the meaning baptism should hold in our lives.

CELEBRATION OF FAITH, VOL. II: THE CHURCH YEAR

Author: ALEXANDER SCHMEMANN #: 10572
There is no human society without celebrations, holidays and feasts, "The feast is part of man`s inescapable rhythm of work and rest," observes Fr Schmemann. But beyond the need to rest from work, the development of celebrations in human culture has much deeper root in man`s absolutely irrepressible need, not just for rest, but for joy, for meaning that we find the true source of celebration and its tenacity in human society. Feasts, in every culture, have become the repository and expression of a society`s goals, ambitions, and world view. As Fr Schmemann writes, "tell me what you celebrate, and I will tell you who you are."

A COMMENTARY ON THE DIVINE LITURGY

Author: NICHOLAS CABASILAS #: 10573
Nicholas Cabasilas` Commentary on the Divine Liturgy is a remarkable product of Byzantium`s last great flowering of theology. The work has long been essential reading for specialists in the fields of comparative liturgy and history of liturgy, since Cabasilas` comments in detail on the Byzantine rite of his day and is able to draw comparisons with the Roman liturgy as well.

ON THE DIVINE LITURGY

Author: ST GERMANUS OF CONSTANTINOPLE TRANSLATED BY PAUL MEYENDORFF #: 10575
The eighth-century document Historia Ecclesiastica of Germanus, Patriarch of Constantinople (715-730), was for centuries the quasi-official explanation of the Divine Liturgy for the Byzantine Christian world. Although "allegorical" in content, its interest lies in its historical value, for it appeared at a time of great flux in the life of the Byzantine Church, at the outbreak of the iconoclastic controversies, a period which marked a strong shift in theology and piety.

BREAK THE HOLY BREAD, MASTER: A THEOLOGY OF COMMUNION BREAD

Author: SERGEI SVESHNIKOV #: 10579
This work examines the history, theology, and praxis of the use of sacramental bread in traditional Christianity. From the Last Supper to the Great Schism, and from Christology to ecclesiology and Christian anthropology—the symbolism of bread has dominated Christian history and belief. What kind of bread did Christ offer to His disciples at the Last Supper? Why do Roman Catholics and the Orthodox disagree on how to bake bread? What is the significance of the symbolism of bread for Christian theology and praxis? This book addresses these and many other questions. Scholars and bakers, clergy and lay folk alike—all are invited to take a closer look at that which speaks of our unity—one loaf to represent one Body.
