Synopsis

This first volume contains two studies, the first by Gary Macy, one of the series editors, and the other by Fr. John Hilary Martin. Macy provides the background to the earliest understanding of 'ordination' and discusses some of the controversy surrounding the change in the definition of the term in the 12th century. Until that time 'ordination' meant, 'installed,' as a king was said to be ordained when he was crowned king; a deacon was ordained into the diaconate and so was a deaconess. Then the theologians and canonists of the period insisted that the only 'true' ordination was to those roles that served at the altar, and that, furthermore, only men could serve in those roles.
