Fr. Adrian Fortescue: A Remarkable Life

I've been reading about the life of the late Fr. Adrian Fortescue ( 14 Jan 1874 - 11 Feb 1923 ) for the past couple of days. For those who do not know, Fr. Fortescue was the pre-eminent liturgical scholar of the early twentieth century-- not only that, but this great man 'was an artist, calligrapher, composer, adventurer - and a devoted parish priest'. He is also the author of 'The Ceremonies of the Roman Rite Described', considered THE authoritative guide to the proper and dignified celebration of the Traditional Latin Mass.
