How to order?
The liturgical office for Thomas of Canterbury was sung from Norway to Hungary. In versions for monasteries and for secular churches it survives nowadays in several hundred manuscripts. Offices for St.Dominic and St.Francis were similarly widespread. Did the office for Thomas of Canterbury influence them? There are eight or nine offices for Corpus Christi. How are they related to each other? Why did the Dominicans ask a Master-General of the order to write an office for Corpus Christi if Thomas Aquinas, a Dominican himself, had already done so? And why are there no adequate scholarly editions for any of these important offices? This unusual book provides tools that can help to address such questions. The repertory is presented in electronic editions that can be fully indexed and searched. They are included on three 3.5'' high-density disks with the book, together with computer programs (written specifically for the project) that produce keywords in context and other indices. No other software is required, but access to commercial wordprocessors is assumed.
