Holy Week Ceremonies in Papal Chapels as recounted by English Cardinal, Nicholas Wiseman

Speaking of book titles, I thought some of our readership might be interested in this:

Four Lectures on the Offices and Ceremonies of Holy Week as Performed in the Papal Chapels

by [Cardinal] Nicholas Wiseman


The reason I mention this is because some of the descriptions of Cardinal Wiseman of the Papal Ceremonial is quite interesting from what I can see. I intend to transcribe some of these descriptions for NLM readers who might be interested in this sort of historical and liturgical accounting.
