 Liturgical Reform: The End of the Established Church

Show Summary Details


Continues the previous argument. Many attempts to introduce modern vernacular liturgies, and widespread urban public debate thereon, were hampered by a ruler's authorized liturgy. Particular attention is given to a suitable liturgical music to accompany a modern sermon, church renovation and the demise of the established church in Scandinavia and in Prussia in its public Code (1794).

Keywords: authorized liturgy; church renovation; established church; liturgical music; modern sermon; public Code; vernacular liturgies
