More Sarum

This is worth reading.

A Case for the Restoration of the Sarum Rite

The author doesn't think much of the argument that Sarum cannot be celebrated because it has fallen out of use. This is (I think) the only semblance of an argument against its revival. But if a religious foundation or an association get on with it and celebrate it - at least the Office to start with - then it becomes a living rite, and this argument becomes obsolete.


  1. Dear Mr. Graham:

    I would agree with your assessment in the last sentence of your entry. When would you like to start that process? Although I am an Eastern, and not a Roman Catholic, I would be happy to help.

    And thank you for your kind comment and posting on my poor entry.

    1. I like the question very much: When? I think it should be now. I will write another brief post about it, and would be very glad of your assistance on the liturgical side of things.
