Liturgical Latin, Its Origins and Character

Liturgical Latin, Its Origins and Character by Dr. Christine Mohrmann  86 pages

Original year of publication: 1957
Reprinted in the year: 2007

A great little book that gives a short but detailed explanation of Liturgical Latin in three chapters. Chapter One- Sacred and Hieratic Languages, Two- Early Christian Latin and the Origin of Liturgical Latin, Three- General Characteristics of Liturgical Latin. Written in an easy to read format so you don't have to be a historian or scholar to understand what is contained therein. A nice companion to a grammatical Latin course which rarely give any background to the development of the language.

I ran across a reference to "Liturgical Latin, Its Origins and Character" on a blog that I happened to read and went about looking for it with my usual sources to no avail. I ran a search and came across your website. The price was reasonable and the delivery time was acceptable so I placed the order and to my surprise, the book appeared in much less time than was quoted. The quality was excellent and I heartily recommend this book for anyone who is concerned with our Sacred Liturgy. Thanks so much for the fine work that you are doing. I will bookmark your site and check with you on future items.

Dear Max,  I have received my order this minute - 3.30 p.m., Wednesday October 8 - with the greatest delight & gratitude to you for all you have done to make this possible.  At 89 years of age, now living in retirement, I am able to devote time to things dearest to my heart, such as what Christine Mohrmann & Fr. Hugh Pope have so well elucidated for us.  You have put into my hands these two indispensable aids to solve some questions for me.  God bless you for your kindness & generosity to me.
