A Lost Work by Amalarius of Metz

£9.99

Available in Stock

Amalarius of Metz (c.775-c.850) has borne much of the credit - and the blame - for establishing the ‘allegorical’ interpretation of the liturgy as an exercise unto itself. This volume presents a full study of a long neglected manuscript: Salisbury, Cathedral Library MS.154 contains a version of Amalarius’ Liber officialis that differs significantly from the accepted Hanssens edition. The text of the MS is given in full in Latin and an English translation. No jacket.
