This Will Show Those Mozarabicists

Among the services provided by the blog New Liturgical Movement is its occasional biographical tidbits concerning famous Papist liturgiologists. They recently ran a not-so-interesting sketch of Adrian Fortescue, and today ran a more informative piece on Edmund Bishop.

Bishop (who was not one, nor a priest, nor a fully-professed monk) is the author of many interesting minor works. It is also he who coined a deathless description of the Roman Rite, saying that it is historically characterized by "soberness and sense."
