Originally issued as a series of lectures on the history of the liturgy from a comparative point of view, this work has become, through several revisions and enlargements, a handbook of the history of the literature. Well-documented in notes and an extensive bibliographical appendix (pp. 201-35) covering original texts, translations of liturgical books and the Eastern and Western rites of the Church. Criticized for being too one-sided in its presentation (Eastern Churches Quarterly, XII [Summer, 1958], p. 260).
