Two German publishing offerings of note

Two offerings that may be of interest to our German speaking readership. The German Catholic publisher Nova et Vetera has published a new work edited by Fr. Uwe Michael Lang, Die Anaphora von Addai und Mari (The Anaphora of Addai and Mari) where scholars study this Anaphora which has stirred so much debate and discussion in recent decades.

They have also reprinted the work of Fr. Joseph Braun, Die liturgischen Paramente in Gegenwart und Vergangenheit (The Liturgical Paraments in Present and Past) which looks at vestments.

Many of you will recall that Nova et Vetera, which has numerous interesting non-English language titles, is the publisher that has reprinted (in the original English) a number of the works of Archdale King, such as Liturgies of the Religious Orders, Liturgies of the Past and Liturgies of the Primatial Sees -- all invaluable references for anyone interested in the different Western liturgical rites of the Church.
