This reissue of J.D.C. Fisher’s classic work introduces the reader to primary sources that led the author to the theory of disintegration of the primitive Rite of Initiation. His material is covered geographically according to liturgical areas:
* Rome from John the Deacon and the Gelasian Sacramentary to the 12th century
* Milan and Northern Italy from Ambrose to the Ordo of Beroldus
* Gaul and Germany from the 7th-12th century
* Spain from Isidore of Seville to the Mozarabic Liber Ordinum
This work remains required reading for study of the history and theology of Christian initiation.
