A Sense of the Sacred (One Left)

Vendor: Ignatius Press
Roman Catholic Worship in the Middle Ages


Author: James Monti

Collected here is a wide range of ceremonies, encompassing the seven sacraments, the major feasts of the liturgical year such as Christmas, Easter, and Corpus Christi and special liturgical rites. The sacred celebrations have been drawn from countries across western and central Europe-from Portugal to Poland-but particular attention has been given to liturgical texts of medieval Spain, which until now have received relatively little attention from scholars.
