Ascetic Eucharists

This chapter presents a broad picture of the uses of different foods in early eucharistc meals. It shows that there are serious inadequacies in beginning and ending with consideration of the Christian meal as use of bread and wine only. There are other foods which have some place in the reconstruction of early Christian ritual. These include cheese, milk and honey, other fruits and vegetables, oil, and salt.

Keywords:   early Christianity, food, drink, Christian meals, eucharistic meals
