- n. See epiclesis.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
One element not known to most low churchers is that the eucharist was accompanied by the famous "epiklesis": the invocation of the Spirit to descend upon the elements.
Thank you also for your information about restoration of the epiklesis.
Secondly, replace the epiklesis in the classical Anglican Anaphora with one which cannot be interpreted to support receptionism.
Third, as in the 1549 book, return the intercessions to their proper place WITHIN the anaphora although preferably after the epiklesis and petition to receive worthily and without the "Let us pray for the whole state of Christ's Church".
Merk, according to which the words are intended to exclude the epiklesis and accentuate the fact that the consecration was already completed by the preceding words, is without foundation.
