Excerpt from The Early Eucharist: A. D. 30 180 The present Essay is an expansion and revision of that which was awarded the Hulsean Prize for 1900. The prescribed subject was: The Eucharist in the First Two Centuries, but no writer later than Irenaeus is used, and this has led to the change of title. My plan has been to collect the significant passages which were to be found in writers earlier than Irenaeus, as well as in Irenaeus himself. They are first analysed, and then combined to illustrate aspects of the Eucharist. The analysis has been revised before publication, and the synthesis added. The authorities are reproduced with translations, and attention has been strictly confined to them. The earliest citations are from the Gospels and S. Paul's First Epistle to the Corinthians; the latest are taken from Justin Martyr's Apologies and Irenaeus' work against Heresies. The beginning is thus made in Canonical Scripture; the end is reached in apologetic works addressed to the Pagan, the Jew and the Christian. The critical controversy associated with the names of Harnack, Zahn, Julicher, Spitta and Gardner has been passed over. For various reasons I have not attempted to master it; the works of Hoffmann (Die Abendmahlsgedanken Jesu Christi, 1896) and Schafer (Das Herrenmahl, 1897) sum up the controversy, which has at least served to direct attention to the fountain-head of Eucharistic doctrine and practice.
