This chapter examines the Church's liturgy. The analysis proceeds in four stages. First, the relevance of the ritual of bodily actions to performance of the liturgy is examined, then liturgical clothing as one small example of the complexity of the issues involved. The next section focuses on architecture and the relevance of such staging. The final section discusses liturgical change and the preservation of mystery.

Keywords:   liturgy, bodily expression, ritual, liturgical costume, staging
