Liturgical Studies and Christian Worship: the Postcolonial Challenge

Michael N. Jagessar, Stephen Burns

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article is a first attempt to sketch an agenda for scrutiny of Christian worship through a postcolonial optic. It is suggested that postcolonial theology challenges notions of inculturation and inclusivity as these are sometimes expounded in the context of liturgical studies. Texts and ritual practices are opened to scrutiny and some modest constructive, revisionist proposals are made.
