In this ambitious work, McCall follows the rise of dramatic interpretation of the early Christian liturgy from its beginnings through such elements as costumes, interpretative text, and gesture. He then examines the development of performance theory, focusing on the work of Victor Turner and Richard Schechner. Three views of liturgical theology, especially that of Aidan Kavanagh's, set the stage to construct a definition of liturgy as a mode of performance.McCall brings Aristotle's categories in the Poetics to bear on liturgical action. In the final chapter he analyzes the Gregorian Sacramentary and the actions described in Ordo Romanus I.
