Edition of rare surviving litanies from the middle ages, providing evidence for monastic worship.
From the PublisherThe importance of the commemoration of saints in calendars and litanies is that they are frequent aids to dating the manuscript concerned, thus assisting the interpretation of all the other contents of the manuscript in which they occur. That is the usefulness of this book to those interested in other aspects of medieval life than monastic litanies. . The scholarly world owes (the editor) an immense debt. SEHEPUNKTE
