Description: 

This course explores fundamental elements of Eastern Christian worship as expressed in the five extant liturgical traditions in use among the Orthodox and Eastern Catholic Churches: Alexandrian (Coptic and Ethiopian), Armenian, Byzantine, East Syrian and West Syrian (including the Maronite). After an historical overview extending to the present, we will survey each tradition's distinct liturgical environment, form of music, structure and cycle of services, as well as its prescribed liturgical books, utensils and vestments. In addition to historical and theological perspectives, the survey will include anthropological, psychological, and pastoral dimensions.
