Description - History of the Liturgy by Marcel Metzer

This historical survey describes the major changes in the biblical readings, teaching, singing and ritual. For the first millennium, the book focuses on liturgy's essentials common to the Eastern and Western Churches. For the second millennium, it explains the deviations of the Western Churches, which called for the effort of reform and renewal begun by Vatican II. The book studies the development of the liturgical institutions and distinguishes liturgy's five main stages that correspond to the situations of the churches in ancient, medieval and modern societies. This survey of the history of liturgy is designed as an introduction to the realities that have made and still make up the Church's liturgical life: assemblies, Eucharist, baptism, reconciliation, daily praise, the Church's calendar and its architecture.
