Citations of the Lay Folks MassBook are by page/line number. Jungmann, The Mass of the Roman Rite, 181–82. On this ritual, see The Lay Folks MassBook, 220. The raising of the chalice was not introduced until long afterward: "Even in the sixteenth century the elevation of the chalice had not yet become a universal custom" (Jungmann, Public Worship, 133).

The reading of the Gospel of John (1:1–14) was not attached to the end of the Mass until the sixteenth century, when it was given what became its traditional place at the end of the service in the Missale Romanum of Pius V. I wish to thank my colleague Alan Fletcher for his advice and help.
