Kierkegaard and the Staging of Desire

Carl S. Hughes

Fordham University Press

This chapter extends the author’s theatrical analysis of Kierkegaard’s rhetoric to the liturgical and sacramental context of the Eucharistic Discourses. The chapter begins by situating these under-appreciated Kierkegaardian texts in the architectural context of Copenhagen’s Vor Frue Kirke and the liturgical context of the Danish Lutheran Friday Eucharist service. The chapter then analyzes the themes of longing, sin and forgiveness, and sacramental presence in the first three of Kierkegaard’s Eucharistic Discourses from 1848.

Keywords:   Vor Frue Kirke, Thorvaldsen, Christus, Liturgy, Friday Eucharist, Communion Discourses, Eucharistic Discourses, Longing, Sin, Sacramental Presence
