Corpus mysticum – L'Eucharistie et l'Église au Moyen Âge
Collection Œuvres du Cardinal Henri de Lubac e - N° 15
656 pages - mars 2010
As the sub-title ‘Historical Study’ tells us, in this book Father de Lubac explores the usage of the expression ‘corpus mysticum’ throughout the centuries, from the end of Antiquity to the end of the Middle Ages. How was this expression - initially forged to designate the Eucharist - transferred to the Church? And what does this movement signify, if not a transformation of Christian thought in its perception of symbolism? The smooth passage, during the first centuries, between the Eucharist and the Church corresponds to a vibrant sense of reciprocal inclusion of the Eucharistic doctrine and of the conception of the Church. Father de Lubac retraces and elucidates the history of the expression ‘corpus mysticum’ in such a way that today’s Christians can perceive for themselves the perpetual links that generations have sensed between the Church and the Eucharist.
