Overview

Gordon Lathrop explores how the central symbols and interactions of Christian liturgy yield, for their participants, a new understanding and experience of the world. He creatively considers various kinds of worldmaking, the diverse maps, and differing senses of "cosmology" in which we all live. Holy Ground illumines how certain liturgical reforms can contribute to a refreshed sense of ecological ethics - to a Christian sense of the holiness of the earth itself.
