New Liturgical Journal: "Usus Antiquior"

A new journal for the study of the sacred liturgy has been announced: Usus Antiquior. On 14 September this year, there will be a reception for the journal's benefactors in St Wilfred’s Hall following solemn vespers. Contributions for initial editions will be commissioned and an invitation for submissions will be issued. The first issue is planned for 7 July 2009.

Usus Antiquior is an initiative of the Society of St Catherine of Siena and will be committed to the study and promotion of the historical, philosophical, theological and pastoral aspects of the Roman rite as developed in tradition. As the website points out:
Because the different forms of the Roman rite “can be mutually enriching,” Usus Antiquior also seeks to make a positive contribution to the discussion of questions pertinent to the liturgical life of the Church in our day.
At the Subscriptions page, you can register an interest.
