After Writing: On the Liturgical Cosummation of Philosophy by Catherine Pickstock
Catherine Pickstock shows howPlatonic philosophy did not assume a primacy of metaphysicalpresence, as had previously been thought, but a primacy ofliturgical theory and practice. The author also provides asignificant rethinking of Christian understandings of language, temporal and bodily life, and notions of the presence of God bydiscussing the Christian understandings of the liturgical practice, especially in the Medieval and pre-Enlightenment era.
Through adetailed reading of Plato’s Phaedrus, the medieval RomanRite, and a discussion of the theology of the Eucharist, the bookindicates directions for the restoration of the liturgical order. This book will be required reading for all systematic andphilosophical theologians and their students, besides being ofgreat interest to liturgists, historians and linguists.
