Rite of Tibães

One of our readers was kind enough to send us a short article on the rite of Tibães. This article (in Portuguese) was in the long extinct liturgical magazine Opus Dei, published by the Benedictines of Singeverga (at the time, spearhead of the Liturgical Movement in Portugal). For those who have never heard of the rite of Tibães, it was the liturgical rite of the Portuguese Benedictine congregation, used in all the Portuguese Benedictine institutions and houses up until the 19th century, when the religious houses in Portugal were expelled by the government. The rite’s name comes from the locality where the Benedictine’s motherhouse was located, a village called Tibães, outside of Braga. We share this article due to the fact that there exists a relationship between it and the Bragan rite. To access the article, just click the link below.
