Chapter Summary

This chapter aims to illustrate that the original meaning of the human presence within the sanctuary was to generate a moment in which liturgical gestures develop into a genuine machinery of salvation. Such machinery was supposed to lead to salvation by attempting to prompt God's gracious condescension and salvific agency. The community considers salvation coming through liturgical acts and desires to be, or conceives itself to be, serving together with the angels. The mystery of the sacrificial manifestation of the Logos in history is accomplished through his coming to earth. In sanctum Pascha begins with the description of the manifestation of the Logos as a heavenly light present in the whole universe. An inquiry of the relevant background of the Christian liturgical soteriological vision has to begin with the Temple in Jerusalem, most plausibly the framework which generated the concept of a liturgical soteriology with its essential elements.
