Method of Communion under both kinds before the 13th century.
#1
So, I am aware of the practice of "intinction" which both the Council of Braga and, later, the Council of Clermont condemned. The fact that this method wasn't the norm in the West (or even the East for some time) has led me to wonder what the practical way of receiving communion was (in general), in those days in which the faithful tended to receive under both kinds. Do we know? I can imagine a deacon or subdeacon coming in behind the priest, but also think some precautions must have been in place to prevent profanation.
