The Rite of Illyricum and Pannonia (Noricum too, perhaps?)
« on: December 08, 2009, 04:07:04 AM »
Is anybody familiar with the rites used in Illyricum and Pannonia before the advent of the Slavs and of the  Hungarians and before the consolidation of their religious identities?
I was reading in a study published by a Romanian Greek-Catholic, that there are still a couple of sacramentaries-one of Salzburg, I think- that witness the existence of a hybrid gallo-romano-constantinopolitan rite in these areas.For instance the Great Blessing of the Waters on Theophany was basically, the Latin translation of the one done in Constantinople.
I'd be interested in it, since this would shed some light as to the rite used by a part, at least, of the proto-Romanians, before the full import of the Constantinopolitan rite through the Bulgarian Church (IX-XII centuries).
So, is anybody aware of any materials on the subject, especially on the Salzburg sacramentary?

Would that be at all related to the rite of the church of Thessaloniki?

The Romanians were already using the Constantinople rite, as the Scythian monks quote the DL of St. Basil.
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

That might be true for the extra-carpathian territories, but I really doubt that such was the case in the West and N-W.
