The Life and Work of Virgil Michel: A Dissertation
Click here for this book
"Dom Virgil Michel, O.S.B., was, as his life, work, and writings indicate, a man of almost universal interests. To single out one facet of his varied labors would be difficult, since his many interests prove to be pathways to a single goal: bringing Christian social doctrine into vibrant life in the world of his time. Yet not everything in his crowded life can be treated here in detail. This study, therefore, is chiefly concerned with the American liturgical movement: its origins, development, and ramifications especially up to 1938, the year of Dom Virgil's death. His non-liturgical writings and activities are merely surveyed. It should likewise be kept in mind that the social, philosophical, and other movements discussed herein are confined to the period of Michel's lifetime, except where needed clarification made going beyond that date a necessity."
