Publication Date

Abstract

This study identifies “liturgical ecclesiology” as a new methodological province for liturgical theologians at the intersection of ecclesiology and liturgical theology. After a chapter of biographical background, it examines the sacramental, homiletical, and liturgical writings of Swiss theologian Jean-Jacques von Allmen to discern and reconstruct his prototypical ‘liturgical ecclesiology’—i.e., an articulation of the way in which the church’s worship, its sacraments, and its preaching shape the church’s identity. It argues that von Allmen was a pioneering theologian working this new field, doing liturgical theology as pastoral ecclesiology. It concludes by suggesting a few specific contextualized implications of his work for liturgical and homiletical thought and practice today to manifest the enduring value of his contribution.
