This article explores the continuities and changes in the texts, rites, and gestures of this unique liturgy (whilst also acknowledging that it sits in a tradition of liturgical articles being published around the time of coronations). The article argues that issues like change and continuity, and the anticipation and management of perceptions, have always been engaged with and instrumentalized by those responsible for compiling and working out the coronation liturgy in England: in 2023 that group included, as on previous occasions, the Royal Household, the Archbishop of Canterbury, and the broadcast media. The coronation liturgy is one in which adaptation to the perceived needs of the moment has always played an important role, and this article demonstrates how, in 2023, this is particularly evident in the text of the liturgical rite as well as in its performance.</p> 2023-10-31T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Daniel Lloyd Occasional Prayers in Bohairic Coptic Euchologia 2023-10-04T17:20:10+02:00 Arsenius Mikhail <p>While the Bohairic Coptic Euchologion is a liturgical book primarily providing the prayer texts needed by the priest for the celebration of the Eucharist, its manuscripts often contain other contents. One of these possible additional texts is a group of stand-alone prayers written for various blessings in daily situations, such as before and after meals, blessing of oil, water, and prayers for the sick. This article is an initial survey of this small corpus of 17 prayers scattered throughout several Bohairic Euchologia manuscripts. The overview and inventory of these prayers given here paves the way towards the future publication, translation, as well as the textual and historical analysis of these prayers in future contributions on this previously unexplored theme in Bohairic liturgy.</p> 2023-10-20T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Arsenius Mikhail Liturgy and Charitable Ministration in Late Antiquity 2023-04-11T07:59:12+02:00 Gabriel Radle <p>This article analyzes the “diakonia” prayers within the two oldest Greek euchologion manuscripts. The author reviews how later liturgical usage and scholarship has connected these prayers to monastic practice, and traces the ways in which these early liturgical prayers originally developed within non-monastic contexts of late antique lay charitable organizations.</p> 2023-05-30T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Gabriel Radle The Initial Blessing of the Byzantine Divine Liturgy 2023-02-09T16:57:48+01:00 Stefano Parenti <p>This article examines the origins, textual history, and meaning of the initial forms of blessing used in Eucharistic formulae in the Constantinopolitan liturgical tradition. In particular, it assesses the validity of the “eschatological” interpretation that some twentieth-century theologians have attributed to the blessing of God’s “basileia”.</p> 2023-05-03T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Stefano Parenti Edition und Übersetzung der Euchologie der Eucharistiefeier der Redaktion „M“ des arabischen Testamentum Domini (I.23–I.28) 2022-06-28T14:19:57+02:00 Martin Lüstraeten <p>Das <em>Testamentum Domini</em> zählt zu den jüngsten Kirchenordnungen und die Fragen nach seiner Verortung, seiner Datierung und seinem Wert als historisches Zeugnis sind seit seiner Entdeckung Anfang des 20. Jahrhunderts ebenso ungelöst wie die Frage nach seiner textlichen Urgestalt. In diesem Beitrag werden mehrere Kapitel aus einer arabischen Rezension des <em>Testamentum Domini</em> ediert und übersetzt, bei denen aufgrund philologischer Besonderheiten vermutet werden kann, dass sie sehr viel näher zum ursprünglichen Wortlaut sind als die bekannte publizierte syrische Fassung von Rahmani. Dabei kann gezeigt werden, dass viele vermeintliche Besonderheiten des <em>Testamentum Domini</em> möglicherweise nur Besonderheiten des von Rahmani edierten Manuskripts sind.</p> 2023-04-17T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Martin Lüstraeten Eucharistic concelebration & Adomnán’s Life of Saint Columba 2023-01-24T13:21:00+01:00 Fergus Ryan <p>The author considers whether the late seventh–century account by Adomnán of Saint Columba’s invitation to the bishop Cronan to “break this bread alone according to the episcopal rite” serves as an indication of concelebration among presbyters and of presbyters with a bishop. He examines Roman and Gallican documents of similar time periods for traces of Eucharistic concelebration and differences in episcopal and presbyteral celebration in the rituals of breaking the consecrated loaf after the Eucharistic Prayer. He concludes that there is every reason to consider the incident described by Adomnán as a witness to concelebration both by presbyters among themselves and with a presiding bishop.</p> 2023-02-20T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Fergus Ryan Das Lektorat – Konstitutives Element der Liturgie? 2023-01-12T10:35:58+01:00 Florian Wegscheider <p>Der Artikel beschäftigt sich mit der liturgietheologischen Bedeutung des Lektorats. Ausgehend von der Öffnung des Lektorats für Frauen durch <em>Spiritus Domini</em> wird die Relevanz von Laien und ihr Lebenszeugnis als Weiterführung des Heilswirkens Gottes in Leben und Liturgie analysiert.&nbsp;</p> 2023-02-16T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Florian Wegscheider
