The Eucharistic Sacrifice in Dumitru Stăniloae’s
Theology with a Referential Point at the
Mysterienlehre of Odo Casel
Florentin AdriAn Crăciun*
In the last century both Orthodox and Catholic theologians have improved their
reflection on the Eucharistic sacrifice in a critical manner in regard to the Latin medieval
or scholastic theology. They have also developed their thinking in a theological dialogue

In this paper, I present two very different and yet very similar ethnographic examples of mountain-related pilgrimage and sacrifice ritual performed by the present-day highland Maya. The question I ask is why the sense of sacredness, animation and power of the mountains endures among the traditionalist as well as Pentecostal Maya in spite of the extensive transformations of the world today. In so doing, I examine the native concept of the mountain not merely as a social or cultural representation, but as an expression of everyday lived experiences and existential relationships between people and the physical and spiritual world they inhabit. Finally, I argue that the experience of interaction, communication and intimacy between the Maya and their mountain deities can be best defined as a dynamic participation in the course of the world – an existential economy of ‘working the world’.
