Books studying liturgical history?
Posted 05 October 2012 - 04:06 PM
I've heard many references to changes in the Liturgy over time, even if gradual and slight, and was wondering if there is any exhaustive or comprehensive study out there on its development and evolution. Does anyone know such books that may be out there? Preferably by Orthodox authors but could be Latin if need be.

Scholarship in this area is very varied and although some bits are good there are also some very poor pieces of research avalabel on the market, it is always best to check the accademic pedigree of author. I would also say that the liturgy in the first five centures is distinct but only really understandable in the context of the eccleology of the time and situation of a given liturgy.

Fr. Gregory Woolfenden of Blessed Memory also has a good book - http://www.amazon.co...49895827&sr=1-2
There is also Hugh Wybrew's book - http://www.amazon.co...49896063&sr=1-1
