Martin Mosebach debates at Frankfurt Cathedral

Forum for Current Affairs discusses the Return of Latin Mass

Public debate on 20 August with Buechner prize winner Mosebach and philosopher Spaemann

FRANKFURT. - The return [literally: "re-admission"] of the Latin Mass according to the Tridentine rite this summer has attracted much media attention and some intense debate. In Germany, it was especially the Frankfurt author and Buechner prize winner Martin Mosebach who has argued for years for returning to the older form of the Catholic Mass, which was the only valid form until the reform of the liturgy in the sixties. On Monday 20 August, Mosebach will debate at the Forum for Current Affairs of the Frankfurter Domkreis Kirche und Wissenschaft at 7pm in the Haus am Dom, the cultural centre of the diocese of Limburg in Frankfurt, whether this re-admission is a "reconquering of the sacred".

Mosebach will be joined by the church historian from Muenster Prof. em. Arnold Angenendt, the liturgist from Bonn Prof. Albert Gerhards and the philosopher from Stutgart Prof. em. Robert Spaemann . The moderator will be the journalist Daniel Deckers of the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.
