Description

This study establishes a fresh approach to understanding liturgical texts in other than strictly historical terms, and paves the way for understanding the essential link between the celebration of liturgy and authentic Christian living. To search out a new methodology appropriate for the study of liturgical texts, the author draws upon Paul Ricoeur's textual hermeneutics and linguist Roman Jakobson's communication theory to set the parameters of the study. Contents: Language, Text and Methodology; The Recovery of Meaning; Ricoeur's Method of Textual Hermeneutics; Theoretical Analytic of Select Action and Communication Theories; Practical Analytic of Select Eucharistic Text; Understanding the Select Eucharistic Text; Bibliography of Cited Works; Appendix: Select Eucharistic Text; Index.
