By the end of the fifteenth century, the Eucharist had come to
encompass theology, liturgy, art, architecture, and music. In the
sixteenth century, each of these dimensions was questioned,
challenged, rethought, as western European Christians divided over
their central act of worship. This volume offers an introduction to
early modern thinking on the Eucharist-as theology, as Christology,
as a moment of human and divine communion, as that which the
faithful do, as taking place, and as visible and audible. The
scholars gathered in this volume speak from a range of
disciplines-liturgics, history, history of art, history of
theology, philosophy, musicology, and literary theory. The volume
thus also brings different methods and approaches, as well as
confessional orientations to a consideration of the Eucharist in
the Reformation. Contributors include: Gary Macy, Volker Leppin,
Carrie Euler, Nicholas Thompson, Nicholas Wolterstorff, John D.
