The Eucharistic liturgy of the 1662 Book of Common Prayer has projected several different faces. It has been interpreted in both a realist and nominalist fashion and the theological and liturgical interpretations have differed according to these philosophical assumptions. Discussion of the way these assumptions have been shown in various liturgical formats including the 1662 Book of Common Prayer are discussed before a more detailed assessment of the 1662 Eucharistic liturgy is carried out. The Declaration on Kneeling or the so-called Black Rubric together with the Catechism of 1604 are discussed to show the different interpretations of Eucharistic theology found in the 1662 Book of Common Prayer. The article points out the value of the 1662 Eucharistic liturgy and argues it is important to respect different interpretations.
