Foundational Documents on the Origins and Implementation of Sacrosanctum Concilium

Commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the promulgation of Sacrosanctum Concilium, this volume collects the historical documents leading up to the promulgation of the Constitution as well as the post-Conciliar documents which implemented the prescribed liturgical reforms. A short history of liturgical reform introduces this volume, creating an easy-to-follow timeline that highlights reforms in the liturgy from the Council of Trent through the Second Vatican Council. Throughout this volume, each of these influential documents is examined within the larger historical and theological context of the ongoing reform of the liturgy.

The documents in this volume address topics such as:

  • Active participation
  • The Holy Eucharist
  • Liturgy and justice
  • Sacred music and art
  • The Eucharistic fast
  • Vernacular translations
  • The reform of Holy Week
  • Inculturation
  • Liturgical Reform
  • Post-Conciliar instructions

An indispensable resource for students and pastoral ministers, this volume contains the liturgical documents needed to understand the theological, historical, and pastoral significance of Sacrosanctum Concilium.
