Joint Liturgical Studies 29 – 30

This volume has a modest definition: it is a report of research in progress, in an attempt to understand the meaning and practice of baptism in the early Church and to renew its practice in liturgical churches today. The primary focus of the research is ancient and modern baptismal fonts, because these places of baptism have too often been ignored by liturgical historians and liturgists. A thorough examination of baptism (in history or today) cannot even be approached without attending to the archaeological, architectural, liturgical, and theological evidence these fonts present.
