Archdale King's "Liturgies of the Past" reprinted

Another piece of the Archdale King puzzle is now solved as Nova et Vetera has now put back into print Liturgies of the Past alongside with their previous reprints, Liturgies of the Religious Orders and Liturgies of the Primatial Sees.

Of King's major studies, only The Liturgy of the Roman Church remains out of print.

Of course, it would be additionally welcome if King's Notes on Catholic Liturgies and Eucharistic Reservation in the Western Church were also to come back into print.

The Liturgies of the Past focuses upon historical rites and uses that had fallen into disuse for various reasons.

The price of the volume is 76.00 EUR, paperback. As the owner of their previous King reprints, I can tell people that while they are pricey, the contents are worthwhile and the quality of the binding and publishing is very good.
