9780802043689: Views of Transition: Liturgical Change in Medieval Spain (The British Library Studies in Medieval Culture)

How did a society whose intellectual framework was founded on stasis and regression accommodate innovation? The Spanish Church of the eleventh century was confronted with precisely this problem when it was required to abandon the Mozarabic liturgy in favour of Roman texts.

By examining liturgical manuscripts contemporary with the change, this innovative comparative study reveals ways in which the new liturgy was introduced and received. Dr. Walker has chosen a group of liturgical manuscripts from the Silos corpus held in The British Library as the subject of her investigation. They are set alongside three missals from Spanish libraries, including the notable Missal of San Facundo. By analysing the content, presentation, and style of these little known manuscripts, she builds up a series of snap-shots of the textual and visual strategies employed in implementing liturgical change.
