medieval-religion: Scholarly discussions of medieval religion and culture

Greetings all, 
A friend asks for the origin of 
'the notion that everyone in the early church attended mass and received communion every day, then this moved to Sundays, then, eventually, to the major feasts (for laity), with blessed bread taking its place.
This is the scenario from a vernacular mass commentary which might have been written around 11901210 (although those dates are far from fixed).'
