The past several decades have witnessed a shift in the approach to the Spirit. Since the mid-1960s, scholarly attention has been focused on the role of the Holy Spirit in the modern-and now increasingly postmodern and "post-Christian"-world:

  • first, there has been a resurgence of interest in the pneumatology of past eras
  • second, studies of the Spirit from a Pentecostal and Charismatic perspective have entered the mainstream of contemporary theological discussion and scholarship
  • third, interest in the Spirit has intersected with feminist, liberationist, ecological, global, and interfaith concerns, among others, to produce a multitude of new constructive theological proposals in which the Spirit plays a prominent part

Now it is time to give attention to the liturgical role of the Spirit and the study of worship as a site of the Spirit's presence and work-an approach that is thoroughly and expertly discussed in Eucharistic Epicleses, Ancient and Modern.

Anne McGowan received her PhD in theology with a focus on liturgical studies from the University of Notre Dame in 2011. After spending a year as a post-doctoral associate at the Yale Institute of Sacred Music, she returned to Notre Dame as a post-doctoral teaching scholar and is currently an adjunct professor of theology at Saint John's School of Theology•Seminary in Collegeville, Minnesota.
