The Latin Mass

The Traditional Latin Mass was organically and incrementally developed over the centuries from the 5th century with Pope Gelasius and with Pope St. Gregory the Great in the 7th century. After the Council of Trent in 1570, the a carefully revised edition of the Missal was promulgated by Pope St. Pius V, thereby gaining the name “Tridentine” from the Latin name of the city of Trent Tridentus.
