This present study is intended to investigate the saints' days of The Lutheran Liturgy. The study will look at the historical warrant for the saints’ days. It. will further consider the theological content of the propers for each commemoration. Finally, it will look at the extent of the present use of the saints’ days.
The main emphasis of this paper will be on the saints’ Days in the calendar of the Lutheran Church, and in particular The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod. Such a study must broaden its base to include the history of the minor festivals of the pre-Reformation Western Church as well as some of those of the Eastern Church.
