Print on demand edition. The cover will differ from the original version but the contents are identical.

This book reviews the way that Christian habits of prayer  have evolved from apostolic times to the modern era. It links Christian faith  and culture in a rich and meaningful way. Manners and methods of prayer have  changed in different eras because people have changed their attitudes, and  sensibilities have changed, as well as language, social fabric and  self-understanding.

Edited by Christopher Irvine, this is the first English  edition which contains endnotes as well as the text.

The  late Joseph Jungmann was recognized as one of the most influential church  historians of the twentieth century.  He was also a key scholarly figure in  liturgical renewal, and is best remembered for his magisterial two-volume study The Mass of the Roman Rite.
