Complete Braga Missal of 1924 Now Online

The author of the blog “Alma Bracarense”, a Benedictine oblate named Brother Gregory, informs me that he has completed the scanning of the entire 1924 edition of Missal of Braga, whch is now available for consultation and download in a series of pdfs. The site contains lots of information about the Use of Braga, one of the few places in Europe that maintained its proper medieval Use after the Tridentine reform, and even into the 20th-century. It contains many of the classically medieval features of the liturgy, which will be familiar to those who use the Dominican, Premonstratensian or Old Carmelite liturgical books, or those who have studied the Uses of Sarum, Paris etc., but also many features unique to itself.

From two years ago, some images of the Mass of Palm Sunday according to the Use of Braga, celebrated at the church of the Holy Name in Providence, Rhode Island. (Details explained on the original post.)
