Worship is a mirror of the whole life of the Church. Since it presents the real symbol of the Church itself, it must necessarily reflect actual history. Every great conflict within the Church has also brought about differences in the worship.
The history of Christian worship is full of disputes, divisions and controversies. In this paper I am going to discuss the changes, differences, and contrast of Christian worship at certain stages, and in certain areas. Especially, I will explore the issue of Chinese rites controversy which started in 17th century and lasted for about 300 years.
