Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the liturgy of the Catholic Apostolic Church. It describes the nature of the church's liturgical worship, the symbols used in liturgical worship, its offices of morning and evening prayer, and its Doctrine of the Real Presence. This chapter concludes that the Catholic Apostolics developed comparatively early on a high sacramental and an advanced ritual. Their sacramental theology and practices were designed in anticipation of the corresponding developments which were to take place in certain sections of the Church of England as a result of the Tractarian Movement.
