Why has the Church celebrated the sacraments, in particular baptism and Eucharist? Why, from its origin, has faith in Christ, which is expressed in a human, free, just, loving way of living, ruled by the Gospel, also been expressed in the language of rites? The Sacraments reflects on the theology, celebration, and pastoral usage of the sacraments. Father Chauvet in this study calls upon theological thought of the last twenty centuries, as well as knowledge gained from other disciplines such as exegesis, philosophy, history, and anthropology.
Fr. Louis-Marie Chauvet is professor of sacramental theology at the Institut Catholique in Paris. He is the author of Symbol and Sacramen
