Synopsis

Reflections on the theological aspect of the liturgy was the focus of Alexander Schmemann's intellectual life. He intuitively grasped and insisted upon the essentially theological character of all liturgical renewal. He recognized that the renewal of the church requires a rediscovery of the liturgy's own inherent theology, that same theology which once informed the whole of the church's life as well as the teachings and writings of the leaders of the Patristic age. This theological content which is inherent in the liturgy itself is designed by Schmemann as "liturgical theology". This collection of essays by the pre-eminent 20th-century Orthodox liturgical theologian is intended as a companion volume to his "Introduction to Liturgical Theology". Here can be traced the development of his thought, and particularly his increasingly precise articulation of the nature and method of liturgical theologyy. Here too can be found Schmemann's constant stress on liturgy as an eschatological and ecclesial event and he repeatedly challenges the liturgical movement in both East and West to rediscover these elements, which were so central in the life of the early Church.
