Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a biographical sketch of Jakob J. Petuchowski as rabbi, scholar and ecumenist, and his theological investigation of the Jewish and Christian liturgy. Petuchowski devoted great parts of his work to reflection on liturgy. He researched the development of Jewish liturgy, but not in the manner of a general history of Jewish liturgy. Petuchowski's major scholarly volume greatly enhanced his reputation. He added numerous books, articles and studies showing his understanding of the liturgy as the central and dependable expression of Jewish belief. The ecumenist Petuchowski became better known to a wider circle in Germany in 1971 through an 'Introduction' ('Zum Geleit') to a small monograph by Johannes Oesterreicher who had inspired efforts towards convening a Vatican council.
