Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

'An introduction to the principal forms and orders of Western liturgy between about 900 and 1700, this book explains their nature and basic historical origin, and presents in detail the contents and orders of principal services as well as additional and special forms of worship. This book

emphasizes the mainstream of Western liturgy derived from the medieval Roman Rite as found in secular and monastic churches. After the Reformation it concentrates on the rites of the Roman Catholic church and the Church of England. Harper discusses the nature of liturgy and provides an historical

summary and individual chapters on medieval churches and their communities, the Christian calendar, medieval liturgical books, the Psalms, the Office, the Mass, Processions and Additional Observances, Holy Week and Easter, the Tridentine Rite, and the English Book of Common Prayer. Harper concludes

with two chapters which raise the problems of establishing the order of a liturgical service, and introduces selected medieval sources accessible in facsimile or edition. A select, annotated bibliography and a glossary of ecclesiastical and liturgical terms are included.'

Synopsis:

An historical and analytical study of American avant-garde films and the leading filmmakers in this genre.

Synopsis:

Critics hailed the first edition of Visionary Films as the most complete work written on the exciting, often puzzling, and always controversial genre of American avant-garde film. Now P. Adams Sitney has revised and updated his classic book with a detailed study of major achievements made in the last decade.
