medieval-religion: Scholarly discussions of medieval religion and culture

Has anyone mentioned the Peregrinatio Aetheriae?  There is an  
interesting description of services in the early church at

www.holysepulchre.custodia.org/default.asp?id=4157

Cheers,

> To the Patrician Cæsaria, concerning Communion.
>
> It is good and beneficial to communicate every day, and to partake  
> of the holy body and blood of Christ. For He distinctly says, He  
> that eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life. John 6:54  
> And who doubts that to share frequently in life, is the same thing  
> as to have manifold life. I, indeed, communicate four times a week,  
> on the Lord's day, on Wednesday, on Friday, and on the Sabbath, and  
> on the other days if there is a commemoration of any Saint. It is  
> needless to point out that for anyone in times of persecution to be  
> compelled to take the communion in his own hand without the presence  
> of a priest or minister is not a serious offense, as long custom  
> sanctions this practice from the facts themselves. All the  
> solitaries in the desert, where there is no priest, take the  
> communion themselves, keeping communion at home. And at Alexandria  
> and in Egypt, each one of the laity, for the most part, keeps the  
> communion, at his own house, and participates in it when he likes.  
> For when once the priest has completed the offering, and given it,  
> the recipient, participating in it each time as entire, is bound to  
> believe that he properly takes and receives it from the giver. And  
> even in the church, when the priest gives the portion, the recipient  
> takes it with complete power over it, and so lifts it to his lips  
> with his own hand. It has the same validity whether one portion or  
> several portions are received from the priest at the same time.
