Book Condition:: New


A collection of primary liturgical texts from the beginnings of Christianity to the fifth century. The dazzling varieties and continuities of these ancient liturgies with our own are evident from this collection. The editor's comments, though minimal, are helpful. But little commentary is needed. The texts, unadorned, speak with their own pristine power. 307 pp.
