The life and work of Annibale Bugnini have helped shape the evolution of the Catholic Church over the past half-century, and now, Yves Chiron presents a comprehensive look into the man who helped reform its liturgy. In Annibale Bugnini: Reformer of the Liturgy, readers are invited to uncover Bugnini's biography, his intellectual trajectory, and his lasting legacy on the liturgical landscape.

From his early academic studies in theology to debates at Vatican II to changes that continue to resonate through present day, this book examines how Bugnini served as an influential protagonist in transposing ancient ritual for more modern times. Readers will journey along with Chiron's examination of known documents and personal accounts from colleagues to gain unique insight into the often misunderstood Mussolini-era cleric.

Annibale Bugnini: Reformer of the Liturgy invites you to take part in this important and historic story that more than fifty years later still profoundly affects Catholic worship. Learn more about a man whose work continues to be either applauded or maligned by observers around the world.
