The Traditional Mass

by Michael Fiedrowicz, Angelico Press (2020)

Shows the organic process by which the Roman rite was built up from its foundations into a magnificent structure, marked by the accumulated riches of each age through which it passed, and characterized by order, beauty, and piety in its texts, gestures, rubrics, chants, and calendar—ranging from the major elements to the most minute details.

In view of ever deepening interest in the traditional form of the Roman rite of Mass—which, according to Benedict XVI’s Summorum Pontificum, demands “due honour for its venerable and ancient usage”—a comprehensive but concise introduction to its history, form, and theology is more than ever desirable.
