And the Americans inherited the loud Anaphora straight from Justinian.
He just sets a good example they follow.
"LOL" to cite you.
It is liturgical archeology. Coming from "Le nouvel mouvement liturgique".
No, coming from the Novellae. If you'd read, Justinian is quite clear that he is restoring a usage fallen into disuse (earlier in the book it shows that loud Anaphora is the ancient usage, and the correct one for a variety of reasons, some of which the Emperor cites).
Liturgical archeology by a cradle, from your neck of the woods no less, in a majority Orthodox country going back centuries. Oh, the horror!
Btw, look on your liturgical calendar for "invention": it's liturgical for "archeology."
Just curious, have you removed Deutronomy from your Bible? And while I'm curious, what ARE you talking about with lay litanies?
