More of Gregory Dix





Dom Gregory Dix









One of the most famous Benedictine of Nashdom was Dom Gregory Dix. His life's work was the liturgical analysis called 'The Shape of the Liturgy' first published in 1945. The references to him on Wikipedia appear completely accurate. As a papalist member of the Church of England, there is little doubt that he would no longer be an 'Anglican' Benedictine!
