Quick Reference

Nearly all the historic Liturgies enjoin or presuppose the mixture of water with the wine in the Eucharistic chalice. The practice reflects what Christ probably did at the Last Supper. The first BCP of 1549 directed the continuance of this usage, but the direction disappeared in 1552. Its revival in the C of E in the 19th cent. became a matter of dispute between the Anglo-Catholics and their opponents.
