      The church in Milan 4th century; Spain and Gaul late 4th century;
      Rome until fifth century; Byzantine Church until 7th century; also
      ancient Palestinian lectionary cycle of Torah.

      See Norm Bonneau's "The Sunday Lectionary - Ritual Word, Paschal
      Shape", The Liturical Press, Colleggeville, 1998, ISBN:0-8146-2457-X,
      p. 36

      If Norm is correct, one can presume that Mozarabic use had a sharp
      turnaround in 12th century and Gaul before that. I had a very quick
      look through Vogel and didn't see anything pertinent, although he
      does give examples of lectio continua in a Mozarabic book.
