Communion in the Hands and Similar Frauds


Published on the web with permission of the author.


I wish to acknowledge my debt to Mr. Byron Harries for allowing me to make use of his researches into the Fathers on the question of Communion in the hand; for his kindness in travelling from Wales to Oxford to verify the quotations from the original sources, and for making the translations from the Greek.

I am also indebted to Fr. W. Lawson, S.J., for translating the passage from Bucer's Censura.
