The Guéranger Blog

Welcome to the Gueranger Blog! You have stumbled across the notebook I use to record my thoughts as I read through Dom Prosper Gueranger's 15-volume set, The Liturgical Year. I do not have any special expertise in liturgy, but I have some general knowledge of Catholic theology and an enthusiasm for Gueranger's magnum opus. Think of it as the Liturgical Year fan site!

Peter's Chair at Rome--and at Antioch?

Canisius | 18 January, 2006 16:49

The entry for the memorial of St. Peter's Chair at Rome is very helpful. I had not known that there used to be a double memorial for the St. Peter's chairs at Antioch and at Rome on February 22; then, after Protestant challenges to the papacy, the memorial of the chair at Rome was separated out and moved to January 18 to give it emphasis; by our day, the memorial of the chair at Antioch has been dropped entirely, and the memorial of the chair at Rome has been restored to February 22.

It is always interesting to understand a bit of the history behind our feast days--especially odd-sounding one's like the memorial of a chair.
