The Evolutional Lines of the Celebration of the Eucharist in the Pre‑Constantinian Church
Languages of publication
The period of the first three centuries was characterized by a plurality of liturgical forms and texts. On the basis of preserved sources, this study pursues three types of the celebration of the Eucharist: parousial (in the Didache), staurological (in the Apostle Paul), and epicletic (in the Apocrypha). The conclusions demonstrate that, for the evolution both in the East and in the West, the Pauline conception with its strong connection to the anamnesis of the death of Jesus had a decisive influence. It consequently continues across the Eucharistic texts of Justin to the Anaphora in the document Traditio apostolica: the thanksgiving to the Father and the praise of Him are realized in the koinonia of the Spirit while making the anamnesis of the Son.
