The reform of liturgical rites ordered by the Second Vatican Council necessitated a revision of the Caeremoniale Episcoporum, published in 1886. The objective of this ceremonial is to provide a liturgy for bishops that will stand as a model for all other celebrations.
The eight divisions of the book cover everything from the Mass through liturgical celebrations in connection with the government of a diocese. This is a valued reference for bishops, masters of ceremonies, diocesan liturgical offices, seminary libraries, etc. Two-color printing to separate text from rubrics.
