      Certainly our fellow listmember Frank Senn has done an excellent job of illustrating this point in several of his works. Realizing that a prophet (and/or liturgical scholar--Frank is both) often is not as honored in his/her home town (or discussion list) as he/she ought to be, let me also suggest a thorough reading of the late (the "late" part perhaps suggesting greater authority to some) Cyrille Vogel's Introduction aux sources de l'histoire du culte chretien au moyen age (Spoleto: Centro italiano di studi sull'alto medioevo, 1966)--available in an excellent revision and translation (William G. Storey and Niels Krogh Rasmussen, O.P.) as Medieval Liturgy: An Introduction to the Sources (Washington, DC: The Pastoral Press, 1986). It is worth reading in its entirety, but the brief discussion of "The Peculiar Character of Liturgical Manuscripts" (pp. 62-64) is particular on-point for this thread.

      Personal note to Frank--so far as I am concerned, you can and do still have a place of great honor while living. That's my selfish preference. It's just easier to have a conversation with you that way.
