  • Présence, Visage, Lumière - L’assemblée Liturgique
           Comme Icône

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Julien Sauvé
      Abstract: Studia Liturgica, Ahead of Print.
      Les espaces liturgiques aménagés par Jean-Marie Duthilleul peuvent être qualifiés d’aniconiques. Pourtant, une étude approfondie de la théologie qui les sous-tend fait prendre conscience que Duthilleul ne rejette pas la question de l’image dans ses espaces, mais la déplace. En effet, l’attention qu’il porte à la forme de l’assemblée, à la disposition des participants dans la liturgie, aux visages de ceux-ci et à la lumière qui les éclaire, manifeste le souci de prendre au sérieux la présence du Christ au milieu de son peuple rassemblé pour prier et chanter les psaumes (cf. Sacrosanctum Concilium 7). Or, ces notions de présence, visage et lumière relèvent précisément de la démarche de l’iconographe. Il est donc possible de considérer que Duthilleul envisage l’assemblée liturgique comme une icône.

  • The Anglican Eucharist in Australia’s Beginnings

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Brian Douglas
      Abstract: Studia Liturgica, Ahead of Print.
      This article examines the beginnings of the Eucharist in Australia with the coming of the First Fleet of military and convict settlers in 1788. The role of the first Chaplain, the Rev’d Richard Johnson, is examined against his evangelical background. Tentative suggestions of sacramentality are made within the rich mixture of religious understandings in Australia, including those of the British government and its officials, concerning the Eucharist. The coming of a later ecclesiastical hierarchy in the form of archdeacons and bishops is also discussed to show the emerging influence of the Oxford Movement on eucharistic theology in early Australia, together with continuing evangelical influence.

      Authors: Cassingena-Trévedy François
      First page: 21
      Abstract: Studia Liturgica, Ahead of Print.
      Argumentaire:Au-delà d'une simple mobilisation des diverses expressions artistiques au service de son exercice ordinaire, la liturgie chrétienne se manifeste essentiellement comme une poïétique de la foi. Cette poïétique ne fait pas seulement système avec la dogmatique et l'éthique chrétiennes: à bien des égards, elle transcende ces deux autres versants. Au milieu de toutes les interrogations contemporaines qui concernent le croire et le vivre, la poïétique multiséculaire du célébrer représente une ressource inestimable. La vérité seule ne peut s'imposer, pas davantage qu'elle ne le doit. Plus que jamais la traduction symbolique de la foi, autrement dit la médiation esthétique, mise en pratique communautaire, apparaitra comme digne de foi.

  • Liturgy as Essentially Poietic

      Authors: François Cassingena-Trévedy
      First page: 30
      Abstract: Studia Liturgica, Ahead of Print.
      The Christian liturgy is far more than a simple mobilization of a diverse range of artistic expressions in service of its ordinary performance; in fact, the liturgy is in essence a poiesis of the faith. Nor does this poiesis function as a system in harmony with Christian dogma and ethics, because in many regards it transcends these other two approaches. In the midst of the contemporary questioning concerning faith and life, believing and living, the centuries-old poiesis represents an invaluable resource. Truth alone cannot be imposed, nor should it be. More than ever, the symbolic translation of the faith, or to put it in other words, its aesthetic mediation, as expressed in its communitarian practice, will prove itself worthy of faith.

  • The Poeisis of the Ordinary Being; a Cosmic Liturgy

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Arnaud Montoux
      First page: 52
      Abstract: Studia Liturgica, Ahead of Print.
      Marie Noël, a 20th century poetess from Auxerre in the Burgundy region of France, said “The Saint offers sacrifice. The Artist furnishes the victim.” The quest to understand the far-reaching root system of the liturgy inevitably brings us into contact with the artist, and with all the words, colors and heavy stuff of the world that shape the artist’s work. It is the artist who harvests from deep within the human person the wheat, the dew and the lees of the world, to bring them in offering. Whether or not humanity is conscious of this ascensional mission of the liturgy, human beings must remain open above all to what the ministry of the artist reveals about their universal mission. It is in the words of the poet and in the flesh-encrusted canvases that the ascent begins, that the momentum builds, and so makes possible the eminently human activity which is liturgy.

  • Liturgical Constraints and Openness in Divine Address

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: David Brown
      First page: 65
      Abstract: Studia Liturgica, Ahead of Print.
      While some constraints are necessary to the correct performance of liturgy, both the nature of liturgical language and its wider setting argue for openness. In the case of language, examples are drawn from scripture, formal liturgy and hymns to suggest that their power derives in part from their open, poetic character. The multivalent character of metaphor can help draw worshipers into dialogue with God. Because all metaphors are partial and inevitably fail at some point, elimination is not the best response to perceived inadequacies but the introduction of complementary images. Equally, instead of viewing the setting as a constraint, as in the Hindu concept of darshan it should be seen as an opportunity for God to speak through human artefact. While architecture is briefly addressed, the main focus is on stained glass. Pope Gregory’s “Bible for the illiterate” is quite wrong. Once the rules behind particular styles are appreciated, not only can its power to communicate divine presence be activated but also at times original reflections that go well beyond the merely “illustrative.” Examples range from medieval glass at Canterbury, Chartres and Sens to the work of modern artists such as Harry Clarke, Tom Denny, and Douglas Strachan.

  • Christian Liturgy: The Gift of Devotional Digressions

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Gerald C. Liu
      First page: 80
      Abstract: Studia Liturgica, Ahead of Print.
      The article responds to a keynote address by David Brown from the 2021 Congress of Societas Liturgica hosted online from Notre Dame in July 2021. Brown's address explores liturgical constraints and freedom with regard to liturgical poesis, tradition, and art, with special attention to stained glass. The response argues for a more nuanced and panoramic view of liturgical meaning and history, especially given the twists and turns that established liturgical practices took as they came to be, such as Thomas Cranmer's Prayer of Humble Access and the Agnus Dei as mentioned by Brown. It also argues for more attention to be given to the contemporary trend of decline plaguing many congregations around the world for the sake of liturgical openness, hospitality, and suppleness. The response looks to the invention of the Common Era Time according to the liturgical calendar, the Christianization of leitourgia, and the long history of Crusade violence in order to support its recommendations for foregrounding in liturgical practice and expectations and a healthy sense of liturgical mystery and charity. The response also references the artwork of Arthur Jafa and Titus Kaphar as models for liturgists to consider in order to imagine new kinds of liturgical engagement with art that not only work within sacred genres such as stained glass, but also dare to consider the theological profundity of pieces not readily identifiable as conveying knowledge of God. The response aims to widen liturgical welcome and concludes by raising the question of English as a centralizing language for an international liturgical congress.

  • The Work of Visual Art in Liturgy

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Deborah Sokolove
      First page: 91
      Abstract: Studia Liturgica, Ahead of Print.
      Liturgy and the arts make similar claims about inviting people to take a journey beyond price; to bear witness to the world as it is and as it should be; to experience truth and beauty even in tragedy; and to remind them of their intrinsic right to exist. This similarity leads many people to believe that the arts are essential to good liturgy. It also is the source of the suspicion that visual art, in particular, is a worldly distraction from the serious work of the people. The work of visual art in liturgy is not to decorate, not to give a platform to individual artists for their personal expression, not to serve as empty representations or diagrams of intellectual ideas. Rather, it is to bring all our senses into worship as the living Body of Christ, broken and poured out for the need of the world.

      Authors: Marcia McFee

      Abstract: Studia Liturgica, Ahead of Print.
      Our ancient ancestors instinctively enacted their stories onto and within walls that resonated with the sound, and reflected the light, of their gatherings. Those of us who care for the liturgical needs of our communities have the same task and, I believe, are instinctively compelled by the same Spirit. We call on all of the senses through every expressive medium we have at our disposal—the arts of color, texture, line, movement, intonation, inflection, crescendo and legato. We curate symbolically-significant occasions and act as prompters for the participation of the people in their ritual art-making. We do it because it is what we have always done, because we can’t not do it, and if we are not doing it, it is because it is being actively suppressed by our own or other's notions about what is “right and good.” The relationship of liturgy and the arts is not primarily a conversation between entities, but an inextricable part of our very anima, our pneuma. The stories handed down to us come alive when we come alive.

  • Ars Ludendi: Urban Liturgies as Public Service in a Secular World

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Mirella Klomp
      First page: 105
      Abstract: Studia Liturgica, Ahead of Print.
      Liturgy as art is one of the various particular relationships between liturgy and the arts. This article engages with “liturgy as public art” and addresses the question “how can urban liturgies be understood as public art in secularizing societies'” It presents three examples of contemporary “urban liturgies,” against the backdrop of the transfer and transformation of Christian liturgical forms and repertories from the church to the wider culture in post-Christian, post-secular Western societies. It then offers an anthropological interpretation of such liturgies, using the notion of play, but highlighting an aspect of play that has, so far, remained underexposed in liturgical studies. Afterwards, it unpacks how this anthropological interpretation is anchored in a Lutheran theological view of God as a playful God (deus ludens), which also gives theology a critical position vis-à-vis liturgical practices. The last section answers the central question by concluding that urban liturgies are alternative occasions that offer a playfield emphatically addressing and challenging people’s hermeneutic capacity to meaningfully deal with the sacred, thus inviting them into God's play. Offering playfields is how these urban liturgies serve the common good: they open up the possibility for people to be drawn into God's play. These liturgies are not just rituals—they are a public art: the art of playing.

      Celebrations of blessing for newborns are examples of a group of services that have a high sensitivity toward a certain milieu, social context, or occasion. These services are described as “second program” or alternative services. But are they actually “liturgy” at all' In order to approach this question, this article first analyzes various excerpts from an interview. As a next step, a historical discourse is outlined that was dedicated to a similar question. Already in 1933, the theologian Josef Andreas Jungmann raised this question in his article “What is Liturgy'”. A conclusion connects both approaches: The close connection between liturgy and church classifies these celebrations as liturgy. In a reverse direction these liturgies also raise the question of an image of church that emerges from these celebrations.

  • Recording as the Re-Membering Work of the People: A Catholic-Jewish
           Dialogue on the Body and Liturgical Memory

      Abstract: Studia Liturgica, Volume 51, Issue 2, Page 122-142, September 2021.
      The word leitourgia, meaning the work of the people, is often used to describe Christian worship and has also been adopted by many scholars of Jewish public worship. This word implies that liturgical worship in the Jewish and Christian traditions is a work that incorporates a people or assembly. The time- and place-shifting afforded by new recording technologies, however, alters the nature of liturgical work and its relationship to tradition, memory, and the assembly. In this article, phenomenology and reflexivity are deployed to examine the role of the body and its liturgical formation on producing and revisiting recorded liturgy. Liturgical work is already practiced by worshippers who (often in defiance of official leadership) record and view recorded liturgies. The embodied work of this displaced assembly reveals unexpected similarities in Jewish and Catholic ordained leaders’ “flattening” before the physical and metaphorical cameras of Western public life. Finally, diverse experiences of recorded liturgy are used to compare theological concepts of liturgical memory in Jewish and Catholic thought.

      Abstract: Studia Liturgica, Volume 51, Issue 2, Page 143-158, September 2021.
      This article examines the genre of Contemporary Worship Music (CWM) within worship contexts in terms of its formative and purposeful nature. In CWM settings, the worship leader plays a particular role in the selection and facilitation of CWM repertoire to be led by praise bands. Through the leader's consideration of the message of the CWM lyrics, and the relational nature of CWM practices, a worship leader's pedagogical decisions are integral to contributing to a space of dialogue for worship musicians. Drawing on previous literature addressing liturgical language in worship, I analyze the CWM context as a particular case where liturgical language shapes musicians’ spiritual formation. This examination of CWM practices includes an analysis of musicians’ engagement in relational musicking and meeting through I-Thou encounters. I therefore explore both the need for worship leaders to consider the multitudinous theological implications of their actions, as well as the way musicians are shaped and formed intimately through their musical engagement with CWM.

      This article puts Frederick Jackson Turner’s “frontier thesis”—an interpretation of American history that held sway among historians and the general public from the late 1890s to the 1930s—in conversation with James F. White’s depiction of an American liturgical “frontier tradition”—an interpretation of evangelical worship that became popular in the 1990s and continues to hold sway in the twenty-first century. It analyzes both through the lens of contemporary critiques and proposes new lines of inquiry that will contribute to a more robust understanding of American evangelical worship.

  • Redacting Acts: The Acts of the Apostles in the Three-Year Lectionaries

      Abstract: Studia Liturgica, Volume 51, Issue 2, Page 173-186, September 2021.
      The representation of the Acts of the Apostles in the three-year lectionaries—the Roman Catholic Ordo Lectionum Missae (OLM) and the Protestant Revised Common Lectionary (RCL)—favors the first half of the twenty-eight-chapter book over its second half. The OLM prescribes nine times more verses from the first half than from the second half, and the RCL prescribes four times more. This article compares the proportion of Acts in the lectionaries to the other twenty-six books of the New Testament, shows when in the three-year lectionary cycle readings from Acts are proclaimed, presents how much of each of the twenty-eight chapters of Acts appears in the lectionaries, hypothesizes about why the second half of Acts is slighted, and argues that the church’s liturgical tradition is weakened by muting significant passages about post-resurrection eucharists.

  • “Essentials” for Worship: Evelyn Underhill’s Prayer Book

      Authors: Robyn Wrigley-Carr

      Abstract: Studia Liturgica, Volume 51, Issue 2, Page 187-202, September 2021.
      This article explores some of the theological principles required for effective church worship. In 1927, Evelyn Underhill (1875–1941) outlined four “Essentials” or principles for effective liturgy, identified in the context of revisions to the Anglican Book of Common Prayer: adoration, the historic, the Eternal, and the interplay between spirit and sense. This article explores the extent to which these four theological principles are actually embodied in prayers that Underhill selected and wrote for retreat leading at The House of Retreat, Pleshey (north London, UK), recently published as Evelyn Underhill’s Prayer Book. Additional theological principles, not mentioned in Underhill’s “Essentials” essay but evident in her book of prayers, are also evaluated and exemplified. Underhill’s guidance to her spiritual directees about the value of liturgy in their spiritual lives is also briefly touched upon.

  • “Let the little children come”: Liturgical Revision and Paedocommunion
           in the Christian Reformed Church

      Abstract: Studia Liturgica, Volume 51, Issue 2, Page 203-216, September 2021.
      This article examines the Lord’s Supper liturgies of the Christian Reformed Church in North America (CRC) and inquires into a possible relationship between liturgical changes and the admission of children to the Lord’s Supper. The stern warnings and emphasis on communicants’ understanding of the sacrament in the CRC’s oldest liturgies necessarily excluded children from participating in the sacrament. The 1968 Order for Communion was a milestone in the denomination’s liturgical growth. The absence of a preparatory exhortation and lengthy exposition provide a liturgy which can imagine children participating in the Lord’s Supper. An increasing emphasis on communicants’ communion with one another, evident in the 1981 Service of Word and Sacrament and the formularies adopted by Synods 1994 and 2016 may have helped facilitate the denomination’s acceptance of paedocommunion.

  • “Not My Will But Yours be Done”: The Use of the Mercy Seat in
           Theodramatic Perspective

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Adam Couchman

      Abstract: Studia Liturgica, Volume 51, Issue 2, Page 217-229, September 2021.
      The “Mercy Seat” performs an important function within Salvation Army worship. It symbolizes the central theological tenet of the immediacy of grace to all. Historically, its function was intended for use by those intending to “receive Christ” for the first time. Over time, its use has broadened to include other intentions whilst simultaneously diminishing in the frequency of its use. This article suggests that when viewed from a theodramatic perspective, the act of praying at the Mercy Seat becomes a contemporary, and improvised, performance of Christ's Gethsemane prayer, “Not my will, but yours be done” (Luke 22:42). The broadening of the understanding of this act to become a deliberately repeated and embodied performance of Jesus’ prayer may help to overcome the loss of use of this symbol. Drawing upon the work of Adrienne von Speyr and Kevin Vanhoozer, this article will demonstrate how the prayer of Christ in Gethsemane is embodied through contemporary, improvised performance of his prayer at the Mercy Seat by Salvationists and those new to the faith alike.

  • The Influence of Liturgy on Human Memory: From the Perspective of
           Neuroscience

      Authors: Hwarang Moon

      Abstract: Studia Liturgica, Volume 51, Issue 2, Page 230-242, September 2021.
      Generally, there has been a lack of understanding about liturgy and ritual among reformed tradition. The Reformed and Presbyterian church has had a tendency to look down on the formative power of Christian liturgy while emphasizing cognitive knowledge and catechism education. However, liturgy is not just the repetition of a meaningless act. Liturgy has a formative power in the process of faith formation through its practice and repetition. This article studies how liturgy impacts human memory and faith formation based on several brain studies. First, while examining split-brain studies, it is argued that there is the possibility of ritual knowledge while participating in Christian worship. Second, through the discoveries made in mirror neuron studies, the way human learning is a result of not only interacting with objects, but also the observation of objects, is examined. Third, based on Eric Kandel’s habituation and sensitization experiment, it is claimed that even though liturgical worship can suffer the pitfalls of habituation, a well-balanced liturgical worship can aid sensitization. Lastly, while examining various sorts of memory, various ordo and elements of Christian worship are revealed; in combination these can create a Gestalt perception, and greatly impact human memory and the formation of Christian faith.

  • Societas Liturgica Presidential Address 2021

      Abstract: Studia Liturgica, Ahead of Print.
      The 2021 Congress of Societas Liturgica found the Society operating in new territory, as it embarked on its first online gathering. The presidential address sought first to acknowledge the pressures and difficulties experienced in different ways by participants all over the world during the COVID-19 pandemic. It went on to reflect on the Congress theme—Liturgy and the Arts. While enormous practical and financial limitations have been placed on the arts, including the liturgical arts, in recent times, new possibilities have been discovered. These include new ways of paying attention, not least, thanks to digital means. While some worshipping communities may choose to abandon many of the elements of pre-pandemic liturgy, others will continue to draw on the riches of tradition. In these conditions, there is a need for the kind of intelligent openness that both recognizes the potential for transformation in ordinary things and makes space for the transformative power of extraordinary things.
