  • Was geschieht im Gottesdienst?by Jochen Arnold

    Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht 2011; US$ 20.05

    Was geschieht im Gottesdienst? Auf den ersten Blick klingt diese Frage recht harmlos. Man könnte sie als Auftrag verstehen, das zu beschreiben, was in einem Gottesdienst der Reihe nach »dran ist«: Glocken ? Orgelvorspiel ? Votum und Begrüßung usw. Gewiss spielt dieser »agendarische« Aspekt keine unwesentliche Rolle. Deshalb werden im vorliegenden Buch... more...

  • A Halfway House to Aggiornamento?by Andreas Bieringer

    Verlag Friedrich Pustet 2014; US$ 35.77

    In den USA gab es im Vergleich zu Europa bei der Einführung der Muttersprache in die Messfeier und bei den englischen Gesängen Nachholbedarf. Daher entschieden sich die US-Bischöfe schon 1964, ihr erstes muttersprachliches Messbuch zu veröffentlichen. Das mutige Vorgehen zeugt vom ortskirchlichen Selbstbewusstsein während des Konzils, brachte aber... more...

  • Ceremonies for Spiritual Healing and Growthby Henry Close

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 24.95

    Ceremony as therapy Formal ceremonies seem to be universal in human experience, addressing something very deep and basic in the human psyche.

They emphasize the presence... more...

    This is a study of the social construction and the impression management of the public forms of worship of Catholicism and Anglicanism.

They disclose new perspectives on the... more...
