William Durand was a 13th-century French liturgist and canonist known for his important canonical treatises, including ‘Rationale Divinorum Officiorum’. This work was first written while Durand was in Italy, and was written as a symbolism of Christian ritual. It portrays what liturgy was like during the 13th-century in relation to churchmen, structure of ceremonies, and the physical layout of church. Composed in eight distinct books, ‘Rationale’ also deals with the hierarchy of church officials, liturgical clothes, acceptable furniture in the church, the divine office, and the holy mass.

 

Today, ‘Rationale’ is considered one of the main authorities on medieval Western liturgies. This 1519 edition was published in Venice and is considered exceedingly rare. It is bound in modern embossed leather in the style of 16th-century master printers – binding features functioning clasps.
