Primary Instructor:

This seminar will explore the ritual use and putative meaning of liturgical plainchant through detailed investigation of essential documents (in modern edition). The main sources for the seminar will be the Ordines Romani, the Pontificale Romano-Germanique, and the three medieval recensions of the Pontificale Romanum (that is, through the late thirteenth-century Guillaume Durandus pontifical). Additional primary sources will be assigned. Since none of these documents is fully available in English translation, reading competence in Latin (medieval liturgical or Classical) is a prerequisite for enrollment, as is graduate-level coursework in Gregorian Chant, which should have included a survey of the basic forms of Christian worship. In addition to these materials, readings in modern ritual studies will be assigned. Grading will be based on regularly assigned seminar reports and a substantial term paper, due during the University’s examination period.
