Huub Oosterhuis is one of the leading Dutch poets of new liturgical texts. After the initial Roman Catholic appreciation he is now often criticized and even censored because of his ‘horizontal’ theology. The dimensions of transcendence and immanence, in the traditional theology, come together in the Eucharist. This article explores how Oosterhuis deals with these dimensions and the relationship between the two in his Eucharist Prayer and some of his other liturgical texts.
