Liturgies, hymns, prayers of the ancient Church in India

  • The Liturgy of the Apostles Addai and Mari. Strongly Semitic. Uses Syriac prayers and scriptures. Concentrates solely upon the experience of the Eucharist, the liturgy itself being called The Mystery of Christ [qurbana?]. [Dix 1949.] Early commentaries suggest that these liturgies received their developed form at least by the 8th century. With little change they are still used today in India, southeast Asia and outside. [Asian Christian Theologies 1:??]
