Excerpt from Liber Ecclesie Beati Terrenani De Arbuthnott: Missale Secundum Usum Ecclesiæ Sancti Andreæ in Scotia
I. No apology is necessary for this edition of the Arbuthnott Missal. The Scottish archaeologist, recognizing the fact that of all the utterances of a nation's th... ought the noblest must be the expression of its devotional life, will hail with pleasure this exhibition of the ancient religious forms of his country. The student of ritual and other cognate subjects, will be glad to possess a copy of the almost solitary specimen which time and the strong feelings of a later age it have left us of the Liturgy of a certain period in the Ecclesiastical history of Scotland.
