Worship Wars in Early Lutheranism Choir, Congregation and Three Centuries of Conflict

Joseph Herl

Oxford University Press

Earlier scholars failed to note the long continuation of the choral liturgy in Lutheran churches because (1) when liturgical scholarship began among 19th-century Lutherans, scholars were familiar only with a congregational liturgy and assumed it had been that way since the start of the Reformation; (2) earlier scholars were mainly trying to reconstruct original liturgical forms, not asking how the forms were used; (3) the goal of 19th and early 20th-century scholars was usually to reconstitute early Lutheran liturgy and hymnody in the modern service, not to undertake scholarly investigation; and (4) most scholars consulted official liturgies, which transmit liturgical prescriptions, but not visitation records, which convey what actually took place in churches.
