WESTERN ORTHODOX RITES

ANTE-NICENE APOSTOLIC RITES

Old Roman Rite - The Hippolytan Mass. (Our Missal is offline presently - 8/2000. In the meantime, here is the Hippolytan Eucharistic Prayer.) The Roman Orthodox Missal has the complete Divine Liturgy of Saint Hippolytus of Rome. The Ordinary presented there is based on the best resources: the description of Saint Justin of Rome, the Philosopher, Martyr - the First Apology, Chapters 65-67, and the primitive Roman Ordinary of Saint Hippolytus of Rome, Hieromartyr, in his The Apostolic Tradition. This Greco-Roman Rite is the most ancient and Orthodox Mass of the Roman Catacombs.

The Clementine Liturgy. Click here to go to the so-called Clementine Divine Liturgy - the most ancient of all Eastern Christian Liturgies; a fluid and universal rite of the first three centuries of the Church. The Ordinary presented here is based on the primitive Antiochene Ordinary called the Clementine Liturgy in Book VIII of The Apostolic Constitutions. It is consistent with the form of the primitive Jerusalem Liturgy of Saint James. This ritual tradition pre-dates the Latin Mass and the founding of Byzantium and so is a Liturgy which belongs to the entire Orthodox Church.

Please let the Webmaster know if you find any other ancient Apostolic Mass rites on the Web.

It also has a number of strong parallels with the ancient Greco-Roman Rite Mass.
