From Age to Age. How Christians have Celebrated the Eucharist
by Edward Foley. This was one of the required texts for my Liturgy and Sacraments class in the Spring 2015 semester at the University of Dallas. I liked this book very much and it's content is something for which I have been searching for a long time.
The author traces the development of doctrine and Christian worship with respect to literature, architecture, and Eucharistic vessels. The architecture part was most interesting to me, and helped me understand features of churches I have visited and wondered about. Why was there rood screens in Notre Dame in Amiens? What was the basis for the decision in the Second Vatican Council to move the altar away from the apse and have the priest celebrate Mass facing the people? This book helped me understand the relationship of church design with theology. Very interesting stuff.
