medieval-religion: Scholarly discussions of medieval religion and culture

John , my 1956 Breviarium Romanum (admittedly not medieval but retaining most medieval/early modern usages) suggests you are right about the commencement and relative 'trumps' of Vigils. I noted only two things in addition: in the case of a Vigil being "outranked" by a feast, the use of the Vigil lesson as the final lesson at Matins is optional (there is always a commemoration at Lauds). Also vigils appear to be of different ranks themselves, always "first class" they can be "semi double" (most I looked at) or "simple" (Christmas).

best,

jbw

[We never did establish when a vigil starts, quite possibly because I'm the

only one interested... I would guess that if the day is a feria, the the

vigil starts at Matins. If it is a feast, then the feast is either trumped

by the vigil, or the vigil is trumped by the feast - in which case there is

a nocturn of the vigil at Matins. But that's just a guess.]
