Basil, Liturgy of St

Quick Reference

This liturgy exists in two forms, of which the earlier and shorter is the ordinary liturgy of the Coptic Church. This form has served as a model for modern Eucharistic Prayers, notably the Third Eucharistic Prayer of the RC Church. For some centuries the longer form was the chief liturgy of the E. Church, but it was eventually superseded, except on a few specified days, by the Liturgy of St Chrysostom.

Subjects: Christianity.
