Cover title: A Bibliography of recent liturgical studies.
"In 1974 John Tiller produced a very useful little guide to the liturgical studies which had been published in English since 1960 (`A Modern Liturgical Bibliography', Grove Booklet on Ministry and Worship 23). This present volume attempts to render a similar service for the period of the last ten years. Entries are limited to books and articles published in the English language since 1979, and the list necessarily has to be to some extent selective, but the aim has been to include at least all the more significant recent contributions to the principal areas of the discipline, and thus to provide a starting-point for further study. The bibliography is almost entirely restricted to studies themselves: actual liturgical texts, books of prayers, and other literature of a practical kind have generally been excluded. Nor has any attempt been made to cover the area of sacramental theology or the literature generated by the World Council of Churches', `Baptism, Eucharist and Minstry'. The subject of women and worship is also omitted, since a comprehensive bibliography on this, covering the years 1970-1987, has been provided by Teresa Berger in SL [Studia Liturgica] 19, 1989". -- Intro., p. 2.
Contents divided into 12 sections: Dictionaries and General Collections of Essays -- The Principles of Worship -- The General History of Christian Worship -- Christian Initiation -- The Eucharist -- Ordination and Ministry -- The Daily Office -- The Liturgical Year -- Penance -- Marriage -- Ministry to the Sick -- Liturgical Renewal and Revision.
The Colonial and Continental Church Society in Canada began in 1823 as the "Newfoundland School Society". When activities were extended to the mainland, the name was changed in 1829 to the "Newfoundland and British North America Society for the Education of the Poor" and in 1846 to the "Church of England Society for the Education of the Poor in Newfoundland and the Colonies". In 1851, it united with the Colonial Church Society (originally established in 1835 as the Western Australian Missionary Society and the Colonial Church Society in 1838) to form the "Colonial Church and School Society for sending out clergymen, catechists, and schoolmasters to the colonies of Great Britain, and to British residents in other parts of the world". In 1861, the name was changed to "Colonial and Continental Church Society" (Col. and Con. or C.C.C.S.), the name by which it was known throughout the longest part of its history.
