In this lesson, Fr. Schumer covers the history of the Liturgy from the days of the early church to Vatican II. 

What is the liturgy and how to do we navigate the tide of opinions?  And if the liturgy is so important, why has it changed so much in the last fifty years? Isn’t this an anomaly in the history of the Church? What do the documents of Vatican II really teach about the liturgy and its development?
