These texts, originally published by T&T Clark in 1872 as part of the Ante-Nicene Christian Library, are critical to our historical and spiritual understanding of worship. This lean volume includes the entire liturgies of both James and Mark as well as the Liturgy of the Holy Apostles (composed by Sts. Adaeus and Maris). You'll also find a short introduction and helpful footnotes. For a little perspective -- though it is not believed the apostles James and Mark actually wrote these liturgies as we see them today, they are attributed with developing their basic structure, and it is widely acknowledged that the divine liturgies of Sts. Basil, Cyril and Gregory found their roots here. Of commensurate importance is the Liturgy of the Holy Apostles, thought by scholars to be one of the ''very earliest... formularies of the Christian sacrifice.'' The most essential raw material for any work in liturgical history and theology is brought together here.
