(p.74) 4 Observations on the Divine Office in the Rule of the Master
The Divine Office in the Latin Middle Ages

Joseph Dyer

Oxford University Press

Over twenty chapters of the monastic Rule of the Master (early 6th century) are devoted to the organization of the Office. The two separate descriptions of the Office contained in the Rule are complementary and imply successive redactional stages. Seen in this light, the order of the chapters is entirely logical. The fuller second treatment of the Office may have been intended for a monastery outside the Master's immediate jurisdiction.

Keywords:   Office, liturgical, 6th century, monastic Rule, monastic Office, psalmody, Irish influence, Easter, redactional stages, lucernarium
