CIEL UK Colloquium
Fr Michael Lang of the Oratory has asked me to advertise the International Colloquium being organised by CIEL (Centre International d'Etudes Liturgiques) at Oxford from the 13th to the 16th September 2006. Cardinal Castrillon Hoyos will be present and will celebrate the closing Mass according to the Rite of 1962 in the glorious thirteenth century chapel of Merton College, Oxford.The title of the Colloquium is 'The Genius of the Roman Liturgy: Historical Diversity and Spiritual Reach.' Papers will be given by leading experts, including Eamon Duffy ('Benedict XVI and the Liturgy'), Sheridan Gilley ('Roman Liturgy and Popular Piety'), Fr Michael Lang ('The Early Development of Christian Latin as a Liturgical Language') and Alcuin Reid ('Sacrosanctum Concilium and the Organic Development of the Liturgy'). There will be a daily High Mass, Vespers and Compline.
This should be a great event for the world of liturgical scholarship and also for Catholic Oxford. For more details click here.
