About the Authors
  • Copied in southeastern Gaul around the end of the seventh and beginning of the eighth century, the Bobbio Missal is one of the most important liturgical manuscripts from that period. It is a unique combination of lectionary and sacramentary, to which much canonical and non-canonical material was added. The extent of specialized knowledge, provided by the scholars writing for this book, contributes considerably to our understanding of this complex manuscript, as well as of the broader field of early medieval liturgy and religious culture which it bears witness to.

    • The first study of the Bobbio Missal since 1924
    • Examines the Merovingian liturgy and reveals the richness of early medieval religious culture
    • An important insight into the development of Latin palaeography

    Reviews & endorsements

    "the combined effect of the first-rate scholarship assembled here puts the study of this unique and intriguing manuscript on an entirely new footing." - Journal of English and Germanic Philolgy Frederick S> Paxton, Connecticut College

    "This volume is admirable, indeed, exemplary" - Daniel Sheerin, University of Notre Dame

    "The book revises the paleographical and codicological analyses in E.A. Lowe's 1924 edition of this missal, extending Lowe's historical evaluation to discuss the notions of literacy, liturgical evolution, and clerical reform, as well as offering a viw of eighth century Southern Gaul within the broader European social environment. The Bobbio Missal thus provides an excellent introduction to the study of Merovingian liturgical manuscripts for students and specialists alike." - Laura Marchiori, University of Toronto
