Eucharistic theology in the Book of Common Prayer has been variously interpreted with some arguing for realist assumptions are the underlying theological and philosophical concepts based on the idea of a sacramental principle. Others deny this. In this paper I will look at some of the interpretations of eucharistic theology in the BCP and refer to some aspects which illustrate this, including the 'Declaration on Kneeling' or 'Black Rubric' and the eucharistic liturgy itself. Some comments on the multiformity of eucharistic theology in the Anglican tradition will also be made.
