URING this unique year, wherein so much has been cancelled due to the pandemic, the Society for Catholic Liturgy (SCL) has been creatively offering additional events via Zoom. Back in September, for example, Prof. David Fagerberg began SCL’s Virtual Lecture Series with an engaging talk on What Happens to Us in Liturgy? Three additional lectures in the series have just been announced.
The three upcoming presentations are as follows:
The Mass in the Later Middle Ages: Decline and Vitality
Fr. Uwe Michael Lang
Saturday, 20 March 2021 • 11:00 AM (EDT)
Eucharistic Sacrifice in Maurice de la Taille: Does it (still) matter in today’s Church?
Michon M. Matthiesen
Wednesday, 14 April 2021 • 3:00 PM (EDT)
Suspecting Suspicion: What We Can Know of the Early Eucharist
Fr. Daniel Cardó
Wednesday, 19 May 2021 • 7:00 PM (EDT)
Fuller descriptions of each lecture, along with registration links, may be found in this flyer.
The SCL is to be congratulated for this very interesting and innovative lecture series. Readers who have a scholarly interest in liturgy—whether from architectural, musical, textual, or other perspectives—should consider membership in the Society. Membership is possible at full, associate, and student levels.
Since 1995, SCL has been dedicated to scholarly study and practical renewal of the Church’s liturgy. Members receive copies of the journal Antiphon, published three times annually.
