The Dominican Rite
The renewal in the Church’s liturgical life effected by Pope Benedict XVI’s Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum has generated a great deal of interest, not only in the Traditional Roman Rite in Latin, but also in the revival of other western rites, both of provinces and of Religious Orders.
The Dominican Rite is an ancient and venerable rite in the Western Church, and today is gaining renewed interest both from Dominicans attempting to recover their roots, as well as laity taking up the subject of liturgy. This reprint of Archdale A. King’s study of the Dominican Liturgy traces the history and development of the rite, as well as the spirituality and rubrics. May this work assist those looking to recoup the tradition of Catholic worship passed on by the sons of St. Dominic for generations.
