After Writing

  • By Catherine Pickstock
After Writing provides a significant contribution to the growing genre of works offering a challenge to the modern and post-modern accounts of Christianity.

Pickstock shows how Platonic philosophy did not assume a primacy of metaphysical presence, as had been previously thought, but a primacy of liturgical theory and practice.

The author also provides a significant rethinking of Christian understanding of language, temporal and bodily life, and notions of the presence of God by discussing the Christian understanding of the liturgical practice, especially in the Medieval and pre-Enlightenment era.

Through a detailed reading of Plato's Phaedrus, the medieval Roman Rite, and a discussion of the theology of the Eucharist, the book indicates directions for the restoration of the liturgical order.
