another book

The following beginning to a review of a new book about Adrian Fortescue is written by Dr. Alcuin Reid:

"Adrian Fortescue is of much wider interest and importance than his liturgical works alone. He himself would say that he was first and foremost a theologian and an historian, and as such he knew that the sacred liturgy was far more important than simply rubrics and ceremonial . . ."

The above paragraph could stand alone as a quote of the day. Fortescue's book The Mass: A Study of the Roman Liturgy is an interesting read to me because it is liturgy, theology and history in one.

For more from the book review read here.
