The chant of early Christianity through to the end of the 5th century had its root in the Synagogue, whence early Christians borrowed the traditions of the chanting of psalms, singing of hymns and cantillation. There is some evidence from Acts of the Apostles that early Christians stayed close to contemporary Jewish traditions, for example Acts 2:46-47 states that "with one accord in the Temple, and breaking bread from house to house did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, praising God, and having favour with all the people".[3] Socrates of Constantinople wrote that antiphony was introduced into Christian worship by Ignatius of Antioch (died 107) after he saw a vision of two choirs of angels.[4] Antiphonal singing was an element of Jewish liturgy believed to have entered the monasteries of Syria and Palestine in the 4th century from the Jewish communities such as the one in Antioch.[3]


Polyphonic Marian antiphons emerged in England in the 14th century as settings of texts honouring the Virgin Mary, which were sung separately from the mass and office, often after Compline.[7] Towards the end of the 15th century, English composers produced expanded settings up to nine parts, with increasing complexity and vocal range.[7] The largest collection of such antiphons is the late-15th-century Eton Choirbook.[8] As a result, antiphony remains particularly common in the Anglican musical tradition: the singers often face each other, placed in the quire's Decani and Cantoris.[9]

Above are the results of unscrambling antiphony. Using the word generator and word unscrambler for the letters A N T I P H O N Y, we unscrambled the letters to create a list of all the words found in Scrabble, Words with Friends, and Text Twist. We found a total of 174 words by unscrambling the letters in antiphony. Click these words to find out how many points they are worth, their definitions, and all the other words that can be made by unscrambling the letters from these words. If one or more words can be unscrambled with all the letters entered plus one new letter, then they will also be displayed.

THIS BOOK has its origins in the Jordan Lectures on Comparative Religion, delivered by the author in 2011 at the School of Oriental and African Studies in London. "Nothingness" and "desire" are put forward as what the author calls "guiding fictions," through the interplay of which an antiphony--a call-and-response--between philosophies East and West becomes possible, ranging across five critical contemporary topics: self, God, morality, property, and the nature of the East-West divide.

Perhaps "ranging" is the wrong metaphor of movement: the six lectures that make up this series do not so much "range" complacently or at random across their themes as circle them repeatedly and with intent. Heisig's contention is that the lingering and mistaken centrality in the western philosophical imagination of humanity and its anthropocentric projections has contributed profoundly harmful patterns of thought to our social and political discourse--such that unless new, alternative narratives of life and the natural world begin to take root soon, the social and ecological crises engendered by the old ones seem all but certain to overwhelm us. This gives Nothingness and Desire the feel of being as much an antiphony of politics and philosophy as of philosophies East and West: an examination of how everyday politics--in the broadest sense of our individual and collective pursuit of power and security--and our most fundamental philosophical assumptions unceasingly call out and respond to one another, in such a way that the former can only meaningfully be reimagined, or redeemed, in conjunction with the latter.

"Nothingness" and "desire," the elucidation of which forms the basis of the introductory lecture, perform a great deal of useful work here both as critical concepts and as symbols drawing us constantly onwards in the asking of ever more refined questions about the five major themes of the book. And while Heisig finds parts in his antiphony for voices as diverse as Daoism, Confucianism, various Buddhist traditions, and Japan's Kyoto School, through to Aristotle, Augustine, Eckhart, and the modern German tradition spanning Hegel and Heidegger, his eschewal of unnecessary contextual detail ensures that... 041b061a72
