Setting Right a World Turned Upside Down 09 - The Problem of Participation in the Latin Liturgy

SKU: 4482D-09


Dr. Joseph Shaw (Senior Research Fellow at St Benet’s Hall, Oxford University) examines the Church's official explanations (starting at the Council of Trent) for the use of Latin in the liturgy, and finds them somewhat wanting. He agrees that efforts to increase knowledge of Latin can contribute to the better understanding of mass goers, then he goes on to propose that Latin facility is not at all required. He provides evidence that Mass goers who do not understand Latin have for centuries and still continue to participate actively and fruitfully in Latin liturgies.
