Comparative Liturgy of Judaism and Christianity (JST 517)

This course focuses first on the history, structure, and meaning of the Sabbath liturgy in traditional Judaism, and then looks at the history, structure, and meaning of the Roman Catholic Mass in Christianity. Comparisons and contrasts will be studied between the two liturgies, as well as the Jewish roots of the Mass in ancient Jewish belief and in the ancient Israelite Temple rituals.
