The Holy Table

The Rev J F Leishman, MA, Linton

Origins in Greek and Roman use. The former is the true forerunner of British Church practice (cf. Euchologion), reference being made to dress, standing at prayer, the lifting of the elements, the mixed cup (Aberdeen) and unleavened bread (Galloway) still in use. Frequency of celebration is urged and it is noted that the number of parishes having Easter Communion has recently quadrupled. Posture at table is discussed and other recent practices analysed (e.g. the “little utensils”).
