SARUM RITE

The regulation of the details of the Roman liturgy as they were carried out in pre-Reformation England, Scotland, and Ireland. This rite was sponsored by St. Osmund, Bishop of Salisbury (d. 1099), who incorporated into the Latin Rite certain Norman liturgical traditions. Closely resembling the present-day Dominican Rite, it was superseded by the revised Roman ritual of Pope St. Pius X.
