Lectures by Metropolitan Kallistos Ware on the Divine Liturgy

Kallistos Ware will be no stranger to many of our readers. He is an Eastern Orthodox bishop, an Englishman who became a lecturer at Oxford teaching Eastern Orthodox Studies. He is perhaps best known as the author of works such as The Orthodox Church and The Orthodox Way -- to name only two.

I recently came across some video of two lectures given by him on the topic of the sacred liturgy in the United States. While I have not had a chance to watch them entirely myself, nonetheless, I thought some of our readers would find them of some interest.

Part 1

Part 2

Part 3

Part 4

The following is an excerpt from a separate lecture on the liturgy, also given in the United States.
