Carolingian Liturgical Documents

  • Marshall W. Baldwin
Part of the The Documentary History of Western Civilization book series (DHWC)


In Chapter 80 of the Admonitio generalis. cited above (p. 118), Charlemagne indicated his solicitude for the correct Roman usage in the liturgy which was thenceforth to replace any remaining Gallican forms. Although, in the selection given here, he mentions the desirability of further study on the part of the clergy, it is evident that, with the aid of Paul the Deacon’s collections, they will still rely on the fathers for sermon material. The translation is by D. C. Munro, Pennsylvania Translations and Reprints. vol. VI, no. 5, pp. 14–15.
