8vo - 23 x 15 cm.; xv - 301 pp. Translated from the French edition of 1983, "L'Église en Prière: Principes de la liturgie", by Matthew J. O'Connell. This English edition is termed the "New Edition" and is the first volume of the 4 volume work. From the back cover: " . . . outlines the complex history and development of liturgical practices. From its foreshadowings in the Old Testamnet to the reformed rites of Vatican II, we are made aware, along the way, of liturgy's role in the Church . . . The authors introduce us to the contributions made to the Church's sacred actions from art and music, from theological reflection on historical data, and from our present-day human sciences of anthropology, sociology, psychology and linguistics." Twenty one page comprehensive index and a 5 page bibliography. Minor shelf wear to the covers, else clean and tight with the appearance of having been used very little if at all.
