About this item

Scholars of liturgy, theology, art, and other disciplines explore liturgy from the perspectives of texts, rituals, and encounters. Among their topics are about naked women and Adam's body: the Syriac-Christian Cave of Treasures as a source of Islamic storytelling, provinciae et civitates ecclesiis plenae: transformation of the civitates Indorum in the Apocryphal Acts and the liturgical commemoration of the Apostle Thomas, breaking the fast: the central moment of the Paschal celebration in historical context and diachronic perspective, encounters in the playground: Jewish and Christian children at play in Roman-Byzantine Palestine, and disciplina arcani: modern avatars of Christian ritual secrecy.
