Reviews - What do customers think about The Week of Salvation: History and Traditions of Holy Week?
An easily read study of a broad range of celebrations May 12, 2000
This is a study of the liturgical and devotional practices of the Church during Holy Week - across space and time. It is liberally sprinkled with quotations from the liturgies - in a sense similar to some of the resource books for seasons put out by various presses. In addition it describes the practices of various liturgical families, of various ethnic groups and of Catholic and Orthodox rites.
It was here that I first learned that Tre Ore on Good Friday was not an ancient tradition but rather grew out of Jesuit practice in Peru in the 17th century. On the same page we read of Egeria's experiences in Jerusalem in the 5th century ... of the readings in the Armenian lectionary ... etc.
This is an absolutely delightful book that assists anyone in deepening their understanding of the liturgies of Holy Week/Triduum.
