This classic in comparative liturgy offers a number of liturgies from the Syrian, Egyptian, Persian and Byzantine rites. Brightman goes beyond offering only the Ordinary of the liturgy and gives the liturgy as it might appear on a particular liturgical day, thus including the Proper elements for that day as well. Rubrics and private prayers of the priest are included, as is a useful glossary of liturgical and ecclesiastical terms.
