Hi all,

I'm currently writing my final run of my long paper on 11th century Spanish monarchy and liturgy.  If anyone has any quotes from Schmemann's The Eucharist on the meaning of liturgy to Christian identity, let me know a quote and a citation!

Thanks,
Authio

Hi Authiodionitist,

"Off top of my head," from memory, I can quote one sentence from Fr. Schmemann (not from his "Eucharist," though - rather, from "For the Life of the World"):

"The Church does not "have" liturgy; the Church IS liturgy."

My books are almost all packed away right now.  But I don't know that I would use The Eucharist.  I believe that it was written in Russian first.  There are those who say that it is quite a poor translation into English.  ( I have to admit that I have not looked at it much.  So what do I know? You might well find good things in it to use.)  As George has hinted,For the Life of the World should provide plenty of quotes that you could use.  I would recommend that you consult this book.

Here is the full text of the English translation of "The Eucharist":

Yes, Fr. Alexander wrote it in Russian (it took him almost three years, his last years on earth), and then it was posthumously translated into English.

I've used the comments so far, and I have a paragraph that's open for critique....

Every Christian throughout this era has worshipped in liturgy, which is a “triunity of assembly, the eucharist, and the Church” to “reveal [and] realize the Church.”   Assembly is the event, eucharist (meaning thanksgiving) is the action, and the Church is the community; in this triunity each Christian sees the whole world at the service of God, and so he worships in liturgy, that is, to participate in the work of the people to unify the world through
