The Place Names of the Roman Breviary in Latin and English
by The Rev. F. Pinkman
Original year of publication: 1935
Reprinted in the year: 2009
A handy pamphlet by Rev. F. Pinkman, translating the place-names found in the Breviarium Romanum. These can be confusing and difficult to relate to a modern geographical location. Some are bit obvious (usually the transliterated ones) like- Assisium, Assisi or Mons Cassinus, Monte Cassino. Some are less obvious and a bit vague- Ad Catacumbas, The Catacombs, strictly so called ie. at S. Sebastiano or Herbipolis, Wurzburg. Over 480 place names are interpreted in this little book.
