Abstract [en]

During the 20th century a wave of liturgical renewal swept through the Churches in the West. Its beginnings are to be found in Rome with Pope Pius X and e.g. in England through the impact of the Oxford Movement from 1833 and onward. This liturgical renewal also reached the far North – Sweden, but much later. When the theologian Yngve Brilioth (1891–1959) was young, the celebration of the Eucharist was infrequent, to say the least, in fact almost eradicated in the life of the Church of Sweden. In this dissertation my aim is to study the interaction between ecclesiology and liturgy expressed in the liturgical reforms Yngve Brilioth advocated. Brilioth, the son in law of Archbishop Nathan Söderblom (1866–1931) stands out in the process of liturgical renewal within the Church of Sweden. In 1919 he went to Oxford, England. His experience of the Church of England was most influential for his liturgical and ecclesiologial development, as expressed in his book Eucharistic Faith and Practice Evangelical and Catholic. When Brilioth came back from England it was with the “vision of the glory of the sacrament” – this vision gave him incentive to work for an ecclesiologically motivated liturgical renewal in the Church of Sweden. At the center of his vision was Christ’s ongoing incarnation within the Church, particularily through the celebration of the Eucharist. Brilioth reckoned that when the mass was celebrated in the Catholic tradition and order, the catholicity of the Church became visible. The result of my study is that Brilioth through his liturgical reforms advocated a Catholic liturgy for a Catholic Church.
