Liturgical Theology of Joseph Ratzinger

JPI 1001

“In the crisis of faith through which we are going,” writes Joseph Ratzinger / Benedict XVI, “again and again the focal point proves to be the correct celebration and correct understanding of the Eucharist.” The aim of this course is to gain a deeper understanding of Joseph Ratzinger’s theology of the Eucharist. The themes to be studied include the meaning of “liturgy,” the mode of Christ’s presence in the Eucharist, the Liturgical Movement and the post-conciliar liturgical reform, liturgy and architecture, and the relationship between the Eucharist and the Church.
