Presenting a comprehensive survey of the historical underpinnings of baptismal liturgies and theologies, Bryan Spinks presents an ecumenically and geographically wide-ranging survey and discussion of contemporary baptismal rites, practice and reflection, and sacramental theology. Writing within a clear chronological framework, Bryan Spinks presents two simultaneous volumes on Baptismal Liturgy and Theology. In the first volume, "Early and Medieval Rituals and Theologies of Baptism", Bryan Spinks summarizes the understandings of baptism in the New Testament and the development of baptismal reflection and liturgical rites throughout Syrian, Egyptian, Roman and African regions; focusing particularly on the Homilies of Chrysostom, Cyril of Jerusalem, Theodore and Ambrose. The post-nicene rites and commentaries are discussed and the impact of medieval theologies of baptism and Augustinian theology with reference to Western understanding. In the second volume, "Reformation and Modern Rituals and Theologies of Baptism", Spinks traces developments through the Reformation, liturgies in the 18th and 19th centuries, and explores important new ecumenical perspectives on developments of 20th Century sacramental discussion.
