This is the first comprehensive book on the architecture and imagery of late medieval sacrament houses, those dazzlingly complex microarchitectural structures designed for the paraliturgical reservation and display of the eucharistic and 'real present' body of Christ. The study is embedded in a discussion of sacramental theology and devotion, and traces the development of this genre of furnishing from the introduction of the Corpus Christi feast in 1264 to the first decades of the Counter-Reformation, from the Low Countries to Hungary and the Saxon settlements of Transylvania, from the Swedish island of Gotland to the Swiss Canton of Graubunden. Much of the argument is devoted to such major sacrament houses as those in Leuven's Pieterskerk (1450) or St. Lorenz in Nuremberg (1493-6), though provincial solutions like the dugout tabernacles of the Brandenburg Marches are equally considered. The book is intended as a contribution to the study of both Gothic microarchitecture and the role of the visual in late medieval devotional culture.

In Encounters with God Sister Wendy Beckett travelled to remote churches and monasteries to view the earliest icons of Mary. In Real Presence she resumes this journey to see additional early icons of Jesus and the saints - icons that are among the few to survive the wholesale destruction of icons in the early eighth century. In contrast to the familiar and magnificent icons of later history, these early icons have a haunting simplicity and unfamiliar spiritual power. They come to us from a time closer to that of Christ, when faith was still alive with wonder and possibilities, and these images, a vehicle for prayer, can truly convey his real presence. Prayerful and heartfelt, Real Presence engages with the spiritual imagination of the early church, giving insight into all the emotion and drama of early Christianity and, in so doing, deepens our understanding of faith lived out today.

This book is written with Christians principally in mind, folks whose spiritual life has been nurtured by the sacraments. The Christians I have in mind are also seeking a practical way to enter more deeply into the sacred mystery of the divine presence on a daily basis in their walk-about lives. The sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, Penance and Eucharist are considered from the viewpoint of the method they reveal for developing an habitual state of mind and heart that gives entry into a deeper daily connection with the mysterious presence of the divine in all things.

This work argues that the heart of patristic exegesis is the attempt to find the sacramental reality (real presence) of Christ in the Old Testament Scriptures. Leading theologian Hans Boersma discusses numerous sermons and commentaries of the church fathers to show how they regarded Christ as the treasure hidden in the field of the Old Testament and explains that the church today can and should retrieve the sacramental reading of the early church. Combining detailed scholarly insight with clear, compelling prose, this book makes a unique contribution to contemporary interest in theological interpretation.

The Eucharistic celebration is an ancient ritual originating almost 2000 years ago. It took place during the last Passover supper Jesus had with his apostles on the day before he died. At that time, Jesus took bread, blessed it, broke it, and gave it to the apostles, saying “This is my body.” Subsequently, Jesus took the wine, gave thanks and gave it to the apostles saying, “This is my blood.” Jesus commanded the apostles to “Do this in memory of me.” Currently, the religions of more than three-fourths of the world’s Christians believe that when these same words are said during their faith’s Eucharistic liturgy, the bread and wine turn into the real presence of Jesus Christ, that is, into the body, blood, soul, and divinity of Jesus Christ. In addition, many individuals belonging to those religions which believe in the real presence have little understanding of the basis for this ancient belief. In Exploring the Belief in the Real Presence, author Dr. David J. Keys provides an understanding of the real presence in the Eucharist for both newcomers to the principle and for those who wish to extend their belief to a deeper level. Through scripture and documentation, Keys shares the beauty and richness of this ancient teaching concerning the real presence of Jesus in the Eucharist.

Originally published in 1928, this book was written as an exploration of 'the theory and implications of localisation in cultus'. The text considers forms of divine presence in a variety of religious contexts, drawing a broad distinction between 'symbolic' and 'direct' manifestations of divinity in concrete objects. A notes section is included at the end. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in anthropology and religion.

This book explores Eucharistic conflicts in Augsburg, Germany during the first decade of the Protestant Reformation. The symbolic interpretation of the Eucharist formed part of a broader anti-mediational ideology that its supporters applied to the political, economic, and religious realms.
