Commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the promulgation of Sacrosanctum Concilium, this volume collects the historical documents leading up to the promulgation of the Constitution as well as the post-Conciliar documents which implemented the prescribed liturgical reforms. A short history of liturgical reform introduces this volume, creating an easy-to-follow timeline that highlights reforms in the liturgy from the Council of Trent through the Second Vatican Council. Throughout this volume, each of these influential documents is examined within the larger historical and theological context of the ongoing reform of the liturgy.

The documents in this volume address topics such as:

  • •   Active participation
  • •   The Holy Eucharist
  • •   Liturgy and justice
  • •   Sacred music and art
  • •   The Eucharistic fast
  • •   Vernacular translations
  • •   The reform of Holy Week
  • •   Inculturation
  • •   Liturgical Reform
  • •   Post-Conciliar instructions

An indispensable resource for students and pastoral ministers, this volume contains the liturgical documents needed to understand the theological, historical, and pastoral significance of Sacrosanctum Concilium.

“I am grateful to the editors of Liturgy Training Publications for preserving basic documents that led up to and immediately followed the promulgation of Sacrosanctum Concilium. The introductions provided for each of these documents summarize their main points and give historical background for a better understanding of the context from which they came. In the past fifty years, we have made considerable progress in the renewal of the liturgy and of the life of the Church. Yet, there is always more that needs to be accomplished.”

—Francis Cardinal George, OMI
Archbishop of Chicago


“This compendium of liturgy documents written over the past one hundred years makes it clear that the liturgical reform did not happen overnight. Its contents show the continuum of the current reform—from long before the Second Vatican Council up to the present time.”

—Sandra Dooley,
Director of Liturgy,
St. Margaret Mary Catholic Church,
