Liturgy and Time: Calendar and Daily Prayer

Mon 3 December, 2:00 pm to Thu 6 December, 2:00 pm

This module will explore the ways in which Christian worship has been influenced by its relationship with time.

The way Christians have developed daily patterns of prayer will be investigated, together with the constituent elements of this form or prayer, such as the use of psalms, scripture and intercessory prayer. The historical origins and evolution of the Christian festivals together with their theological and ritual meaning will form the basis of an analysis of annual rhythms of prayer. Contemporary revisions of either Daily Prayer or Calendar will be studied and students will be encouraged to relate their study to their own and other church contexts.

Those not on the MA programme are very welcome to book on this module as an auditor.
