Orthodox Liturgy: Development of the Eucharistic Liturgy in the Byzantine Rite
Wybrew, Hugh, Orthodox Liturgy: Development of the Eucharistic Liturgy in the Byzantine Rite, SPCK.
Observers from Western churches never fail to be awestruck at a celebration of the liturgy in an Orthodox church. Naturally, many questions follow: How has the Orthodox liturgy been shaped? How different is it from the Eucharistic rites of the Western churches? Hugh Wybrew's authoritative, but splendidly readable, book traces step-by-step the story of the development of the Orthodox liturgy from the Last Supper to the present day and vividly conveys a sense of the experience of the worshipers.
