Anaphora

ANAPHORA, ɑn-af´o-rɑ: Name used in the Eastern liturgies for the later or more sacred part of the eucharistic service, answering to the Missa fidelium of the early times, from which the catechumens were excluded, and in the main to the canon of the Roman mass. It begins with the kiss of peace and accompanying prayers, after the “greater entrance” or solemn oblation of the elements on the altar.

(Georg Rietschel).
