When the Old Hispanic rite, the liturgical rite practised uniquely on the Iberian peninsula, was replaced in the later 11th century by the Franco-Roman rite, many features of the old rite had to be adapted to a new ritual context. This included the repertoire of saints' feasts. This panel will explore this transition at three separate institutions: the monastery of San Millan de la Cogolla (Ruíz Torres), the monastery of Santo Domingo de Silos (Rojo Carrillo) and the Cathedral of Toledo (Andrés Fernández). Through close study of manuscript sources, this panel seeks to understand how the transformation of liturgical practice from one tradition to another unfolded in individual institutions, thereby allowing this panel collectively to identify wider trends of cultural continuity and change.
