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 Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts (SPG) started in 1701. It functioned as the missionary society of the Church of England, even though formally it was chartered as an independent organization. Its purpose was to provide "a sufficient maintenance...for an orthodox clergy" and make "such other provision...as may be necessary for the propagation of the Gospel" in colonies belonging to England. It recruited and oversaw pastors, teachers, and catechists; in addition, it paid salaries, built churches, gave direction to the Church of England in the overseas colonies.
