Dictionary of the Liturgy
|Author: Lang, Rev Jovian|
|Publisher: Catholic Book Publishing Corp||Pages: 688|
This is the first full-fledged dictionary on the Liturgy to appear in English since the completion of the liturgy renewal of Vatican II. It places at the fingertips of all Catholics a perfect means of liturgical culture and initiation. Truly an encyclopedic dictionary, it abounds with accurate and clear explanations of everything that has to do with Liturgy--words, gestures, rites, prayers, themes, service books, sacred vessels, vestments, art, music, and much more. Profusely illustrated throughout, it includes special charts and tables as well as a unique pronunciation guide.
