1 - 2 weeks availability
This major bibliography reflects both recent ecumenical trends and a renewed interest in liturgy and worship in all churches. The bibliography deals extensively with major foci of Christian worship: Initiation, Eucharist, Ordination, Marriage, Reconciliation, Ministry to the Sick and Dying, Burial, the Daily Office, and the Calendar. Conceived historically, its major presentation is by church family. Concluding sections deal with worship and the arts, and church music and hymnology. The compilers, liturgical scholars in New Jersey and New York, represent the major Christian traditions.
The late Bard Thompson (Mercersburg Academy, PA; Haverford College; Union Theological Seminary; Columbia University) taught at Emory University's Candler School of Theology, Vanderbilt Divinity School, and Lancaster Theological Seminary before coming to Drew University in 1965. There, as professor of church history, he founded a program in liturgical studies and became dean of the graduate school, gaining a reputation as a surpassing scholar and leader. At the time of his death in 1987 he was still active as an emeritus professor of history and a member of the Center of Theological Inquiry at Princeton.
