Desert Liturgy Delayed!

Some time ago I announced my intention to begin a new blog – DesertLiturgy http://desertliturgy.wordpress.com/ – intended to encourage and facilitate the study and appreciation of the Christian Liturgies of the Desert, specifically those of Egypt and the Middle East. It would seek to provide:

• Notices and reviews of publications (both new and old) in the field;
• References to on-line resources;
• References to and commentaries on liturgical and ritual texts;
• Unpublished or out-of-copyright scholarly material;
• Notices of conferences, seminars and other opportunities for scholarly discussion;
• Photographs relating to liturgy (especially old and otherwise unpublished material);
• References to audio and video recordings of liturgies and liturgical music;
• Discussion of liturgical questions and topics.

Alas, pressure of other commitments has delayed this project. I hope to begin again in the middle of the year. Any suggestions/contributions will be gratefully received.

Meanwhile, two of my own liturgical writings are currently available:
Coptic Cross Bread Stamp
“The Fraction in The Coptic Orthodox Liturgy”
“The Glastonbury Review” No. 101 (December 1999)
http://britishorthodox.org/miscellaneous/the-fraction-in-the-coptic-orthodox-liturgy/
