Liturgical Latin, Church Latin and Your Missal
by Fr. Wilfrid Diamond
Original year of publication: 1941
Reprinted in the year: 2007
Fr. Diamond's excellent book for Learning the Latin of the Church was developed primarily from a correspondence course he taught to more than 400 individuals in the United States and 15 foreign countries. The diversity of this group is astounding- "...used in over 50 high schools ...Carmelite Nuns, seminarians, Marist Brothers, doctors, housewives, and other lay people...". This book was desingned to be used by the average person, and the vocabulary is taken directly from the liturgy, not from "Caesar or Cicero" as the foreward to the book so prouldy states. Includes a small glossary. Also see our other listing for Liturgical Latin, A Textbook and Dictionary which combines this book and Dictionary of Liturgical Latin also by Wilfrid Diamond, which has over 11,000 entries.
