When asked about a shared theology, Episcopalians often reply, “Look in our Book of Common Prayer. Or, better yet, come pray with us!”  At the root of this response is liturgical theology, the understanding that the liturgy is a source of our theology.  In this course, we will explore the question, “What is liturgical theology?” as well as “How do we engage the theology in our liturgy?”  Using Kevin Irwin’s book Context and Text as our main guide, we will build a practical methodology for liturgical theology. Focusing primarily on the Eucharist, students will construct their own liturgical theology using their parish as the context.
