Valentina Covaci, The Latin Tradition of the Hagiopolite Liturgy in the Later Middle Ages (11th- 15th Centuries)

In 1099, the Crusader armies conquered Jerusalem, an event that ushered an era of dramatic changes for the Jerusalem Church. This paper focuses on the Latin liturgy brought to the Holy Land by the conquerors. It explores the limits of the liturgical coexistence inside the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, with a particular focus on Latin-Greek encounters. My research stops in 1517, when the advent of the Protestant Reformation and the Ottoman conquest of Palestine produced yet another dramatic shift in the liturgical life of Latins serving in Jerusalem.
