Peregrinus Gasolinus
Wandering Notes on the Liturgy
Rev. Michael Andrew Chapman

Serialization foreword

Take a ride in this witty classic combining the wandering adventures by gasoline of two priests who address liturgical deviations.

Each story intertwines the Liturgiologist (providing rubrical commentary) and the Antiquary (providing historical insights), a passion for automobiles, and a healthy sprinkling of Latin phrases.

Peregrinus Gasolinus flivver
Have flivver? Will travel and critique!

Written in 1928, some terms may escape younger readers, so explanatory footnotes have been included where necessary as well as further references or commentary about the Liturgiologist’s or Antiquary’s musings.
