Sacrifice and communion are central concepts in any serious discussion of the Eucharist ...The essays in this book seek to re-examine both these important aspects.

Sacrifice and communion are central concepts in any serious discussion of the Eucharist, but have seldom been without controversy, either in themselves or in relation to each other.

The essays in this book, originally delivered as papers at the fifth Fota International Liturgical Conference, seek to re-examine both these aspects of the Eucharist.

The authors come from a wide range of academic backgrounds, and the subject-matter is treated from a scriptural, patristic, liturgical, dogmatic, spiritual and canonical point of view.

Taken as a whole, the contributions demonstrate not only the historical importance but also the abiding relevance of these essential eucharistic categories.
