Editorial Reviews

"The object of Fr. Bouyer's impressive study is the development or, as he calls it, the 'progressive unfolding' of the Christian eucharist and, more precisely, of the 'eucharistic prayer' or anaphora. . . .

No student can consider the history and the meaning of the eucharistic prayer without digging in this treatise."
