In this volume, readers experience, in English translation, the colorful and varied textual fabric of the most important literary and creative repertory of the Middle Ages. The public, organized worship of the Church had a central role in medieval life. Studying its forms and genres allows readers not only to become aware of one of the most important influences on culture and religion, but also to consider these texts, which were widely disseminated and had fundamental effects on daily life.

Suggestions for Further Reading

"Matthew Cheung Salisbury has done a signal service to both instructors of European medieval history and scholars unfamiliar with its liturgy. He has produced a compact (120 pages) guide to the Western Latin liturgy (in the largest sense) that, if read through, provides a solide understanding of this large topic." --John B. Wickstrom, The Medieval Review 18.11.11

Matthew Cheung Salisbury is Lecturer in Music at University and Worcester Colleges, Oxford. Among his publications on the manuscript and printed sources of the medieval liturgy is The Secular Liturgical Office in Late Medieval England (Brepols, 2015).
