(p.3) 1 Introduction
Inside the Offertory

Rebecca Maloy

Oxford University Press

This chapter begins with an introduction to the problems examined in subsequent chapters and the methodologies employed to address them. Next is a review of sources of information about the offertory rite and its chant, with a particular focus on the Ordines Romani and passages relevant for1 its performance. In the Roman rite, the performance lasted only as long as was needed to cover the liturgical actions, suggesting that verses were inconsistently performed. These circumstances offer a possible explanation for the instability of offertory verses.
