Paul Bradshaw, one of the world's foremost scholars on the history of Christian liturgy, has shared this expertise in several works that have become standard texts for students of liturgy. In Rites of Ordination, Bradshaw turns his attention to the ways that Christians through the ages have understood what it means to ordain someone as a minister and how that has been expressed in liturgical practice.

Bradshaw considers the typological background to ordained ministry some have drawn from the Old Testament and what ministry meant to the earliest Christian communities. He explores the ordination rites and theology of the early church, the Christian East, the medieval West, the churches of the Reformation, and the post-Tridentine Roman Catholic Church. Rites of Ordination promises to serve as an enriching resource for seminary students, students of liturgy and church history, and anyone fascinated by the history and theology of Christian liturgy and ministry.

One of the great gifts which Bradshaw has brought to liturgical scholarship is recent decades is his sharp eye regarding what we know and what we do not know. . . . [This book] is an extraordinarily rich study of a major focus of development in the life of the church as a whole. Rites of Ordination is a valuable addition to the extensive bibliography of ordination studies which have been published in recent decades.
Louis Well, Anglican Theological Review
