New. Bouyer's famous study of the origin and development of the Eucharist, specifically that section of the liturgy known as the Canon or the Anaphora, from its Jewish roots through its various Eastern and Western forms down to the present, stands with Dix'sThe Shape of the Liturgy and The Mass of the Roman Rite as one of the three great works of liturgical history this century. Bouyer surveys a formidable selection of eucharistic prayers, quoting many verbatim, and includes and examines examples from the Anglican and other Protestant liturgical traditions as well.
