On another thread, Bound takes issue with Agnus Dei about his ideas concerning the liturgy. He goes on to suggest that Agnus would not have been happy in the early church as it existed during the first 300 years. Then he suggests that the real ecclesia met in people's homes. My question for this thread is what did the real ecclesia look like in the early church? I will start with the issue of whether they met in homes or in more public places. I have always understood that they met in people's homes but have not found anything to corroborate this. In fact, the only thing that comes to mind is 1 Corinthians 11:22 where Paul says, "Do you not have houses in which to eat and drink?" This suggests the church at Corinth was not meeting in a home. Can anyone point to commentary that would resolve this issue? Also (and this is something Agnus may want comment on), what did the early church service (liturgy for Agnus) look like? Moderators, if this should be in the history forum, feel free to move it.
