LTCM 539 Medieval Liturgy

[3]

This course addresses the ritual life of the medieval church, covering the development of liturgical texts, liturgical practices and performance, para-liturgical practices, and popular piety. Students study the riches of medieval religious practices, including the mass, penance, and Corpus Christi festivities, as well as unofficial activities such as lay persons “shoplifting” the consecrated host for their own use after Mass.
