From the Publisher
Editors Note It contains all the collects some of which date back to the time of Leo I, more to Gelasius and yet more to Gregory the Great. The wording of them in their present form owes much to that liturgical genius Thomas Cranmer the sixteenth century Archbishop and martyr when, for beauty of rythm and splendor of diction, the English language was at its zenith. The Prayer Book is now hailed as one of the supreme achievements of the English tongue. The wonderful prayers here are framed with enchanting illustrations which augment and enhance the beauty of the language.
