On the Clergy and Their Vestments
A New Translation of Books 2-3 of the Rationale divinorum officiorum
Distributed for University of Scranton Press
Thibodeau's new translation offers a modern English rendering of portions of this classic work. Book two, on the clergy and their ordination rites, has never been available in English translation. Book three, on the vestments of the clergy, has not been translated into English in over a century. A detailed historical introduction and copious notes accompany Thibodeau's translation. Given the widespread revival of interest in liturgical history, this volume will be required reading for historians and theologians alike.
“Anyone interested in liturgy and Church history will be eager to read Timothy M. Thibodeau’s translation of William Durand’s work, for he has rendered into readable English one of the most important commentaries ever written on Christian worship.”
