Rites and Rituals of the Coptic Orthodox Church
Dictionary of Coptic Orthodox Church Terms and Terminology
* The act of mixing water with wine in the chalice of the Eucharist, constitueted an allusion in the writings of Justine Martyr, Irenaeus, Clement of Alexandria and Cyprian. It seems that the ancient Church carried on the Eucharist what our Lord had probably practiced at the Last Supper; and, with the exception of the Armenian, the historic Liturgies all considered the act of mixing water with wine in the Eucharistic chalice and preserved this as a tradition.
