This paper discusses one of the basic tenets of the Christian religion, the communion service. The author looks at the origin of the communion service in the New Testament and examines the changes that it underwent in the church during the centuries. The author concludes that, in spite of the different forms taken by the communion service in different Christian denominations, all agree in its meaning as the reenactment of the communion with the Risen Christ.
From the Paper:" Indeed it came to pass that the Communion Service is a continuing remembrance of our Lord's Last Supper with His disciples. The first Book of Common Prayer was published for the Church of England in 1549, and it was primarily the work of Thomas Cranmer, Archbishop of Canterbury. Also several books in English had appeared in the 1540s to encourage lay devotion and participation. Of these the most important was The Order of the Communion (1548)."
