Studies in Early Christian Liturgy and Its Context : Byzantium, Syria, Armenia Hardback
Part of the Variorum Collected Studies series
The history of the Eastern liturgical rituals reveals the variety and splendour of the world of the Christian Orient, and the profundity of its theological thought.
The ritual bears witness to the deep impact these liturgies made on the Mediterranean cultures and societies of Late Antiquity.
Gabriele Winkler, a specialist in Oriental liturgies and Armenian studies, here explores the beginnings and early development of these rituals in their historical, philological, and doctrinal context.
Her work elucidates the interdependence of the Syriac, Greek, and Armenian cultures; it also demonstrates the interest of this material for the religious and political history of the era.
