The Divine Office in the Latin Middle Ages

Although the Milanese church is ancient and its liturgical practice unique, its independence must not lead us to assume that the Ambrosian liturgy and chant are entirely indigenous and uniformly old. In the more than 800 years between the city's first bishop (c.200) and the earliest books to detail its Offices, the long and complex history of the Milanese liturgy is shadowy at best. Examination of the Ambrosian Offices for the saints reveals distinct layers and suggests a chronology for the development of the Sanctorale and the enrichment of the public veneration of the saints in the course of these centuries.
