This volume contains sixteen papers on Eastern Christian liturgies: on their origins, historical developments, current practices, and their theologies. The subjects range from initiation in Syriac Christianity to the origins of the feast of the Ark of the Covenant, and to the Book of Hours of Armenia and Jerusalem; from Coptic liturgy to an ancient Ethiopian catechesis with liturgical comments, and to the Palestinian Typicon; from Byzantine vesting rituals to the rite of marriage in the South-Slavic tradition, and to the fifteenth-century Archbishop Symeon of Thessalonica; from present-day Romanian liturgy ‘between Greeks and Slavs’ to Catholic veneration of Russian saints, and to the American Orthodox monastery of New Skete; and from the interactive web 2.0 to Robert Taft looking back on his impressive academic career. Thus the Society of Oriental Liturgy, dedicated to inquiries into the manifold worship traditions of the Eastern Churches, once more demonstrates that its research is an attractive cornucopia.
