Chrysostom, Liturgy of St

Quick Reference

The normal liturgy used in the E. Orthodox Church except on a few days in the year. In its present form it is much later than the time of St Chrysostom. Most scholars question the grounds for associating it with him at all, but parallels in his works have led in recent times to a defence of the connection. It probably owed its influence to being the liturgy of the imperial capital.

Subjects: Christianity.
