Abstract

This article explores the use of the draft eucharistic texts based on The Apostolic Tradition as developed and trialled by the Liturgical Commission of the Anglican Church of Australia. This article goes on to discuss one linguistic and one theological change which the Australian drafts have made to the text of the original and which stand in contrast to other parts of the Christian tradition. The broader question of multiformity of eucharistic theology in the Anglican tradition is examined and an approach for liturgical revision is outlined based on recognizing the multiformity of both eucharistic theology and eucharistic texts as a process of reception where dialogue in communion functions to facilitate the acceptance and use of a differentiated consensus.
