The Role of the Altar in Medieval Liturgical Representation: Holy Week and Easter in the Regularis Concordia

Publikation: Bidrag til bog/antologi/rapportBidrag til bog/antologiForskningfagfællebedømt

The article discusses the role of the altar in some representational Passion and Resurrection enactments prescribed – and described – in the English monastic agreement, Regularis Concordia, the outcome of the Winchester synod in the early to mid 970s, and a major source to the English monastic reform movement of the tenth century as well as to the beginning of what in modern times often has been called ‘dramatic liturgy’. The role of the altar in these ceremonies corroborates, emphasizes and to some extent supplements and narratively plays out main elements of traditional altar symbolism.
