Excerpt from Four Lectures on the Offices and Ceremonies of Holy Week: As Performed in the Papal Chapels; Delivered in Rome in the Lent of MDCCCXXXVII
The eminent utility of Cardinal Wise man's Four Lectures on the Offices and Ceremonies of the Holy Week, and the desire of placing the work more readily within the reach of Catholics on this side of the Atlantic, were the motives that induced the publishers to undertake this edition. This learned and interesting production of the distinguished lecturer deserves a prominent place in every Catholic library. Differing from other writers on the same topics, who have described or explained the ceremonial of the Holy Week in the order of its functions, the author has taken a more general view of the subject, and exhib ited the relation which these ceremonies bear to the fine arts, to history, and to religion. From his instructive pen we learn how architecture, music, poetry.
