By Austin Milner on September 27, 2009
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Written in 1979 this is now an old book, but it is still useful and inded important. Recently doubt has been thrown on some of Michael Dujarier's conclusions. He has been criticised by Paul F. Brfadshaw [ASIN:028105357X Search for the Origins of Christian Worship]p.154] for his attempt to read a formal catechumenate into earlier Syrian evidence culminating in the assertion tbhat 'in the third century catecumenal practice had the same structure evetrywhere'. In this Bradshaw is probably right. It now seems clear that the practiced was far forom uniform and that a relatively short catechumenate was custumary, for example,in Egypt. Nevertheless Dujarier remains the fullist attempt to provide a history of the Catechumenate and he provides many valuble text relevant to the third, fouth and fifth centuries. Untill it is replaced this remains a useful book.
