Chapter Summary

Gabriele Winkler delved into the prehistory and early history of the Christian Sanctus, and gave a paper on the liturgical links between Judaism and Christianity at a conference in Aachen in 2002. This paper illustrated the methodological difficulties inherent in assigning dependencies and dates to Christian prayer texts, which are very hard to date, on the basis of literary parallels with Jewish sources. In the Roman liturgy, the actual Sanctus comes after the preface, the wording of which changes throughout the church year, and which is introduced by a dialogue. The concept of heaven and earth praising God together is mentioned in the Old Testament. The same also applies to Jewish liturgy. The road that must be travelled in order to arrive at this relationship will be just as long as that travelled in researching the historical, liturgical, and theological relationships between Judaism and Christianity.
