The liturgical year emanates and derives its growth from the passion and resurrection of Christ. The present year enumerated in the Roman Calendar is the sum of the feasts that have found their set place in the annual cycle. For each of these feasts and the seasons Doctor Adam gives an individual historical-liturgical account. His basic aim is to explain the theological and spiritual substance of the liturgical year against the background of its historical development.
