(1855–1937), liturgical scholar. In 1877 he was professed a Benedictine monk at Solesmes, and in 1896 elected prior of the projected monastery at Farnborough in Hampshire, of which in 1903 he became Abbot. In conjunction with H. Leclercq he edited the Dictionnaire d'archéologie chrétienne et de liturgie (1903–53) and the Monumenta ecclesiae liturgica (1900–13). His own writings include Le Livre de la prière antique (1900; Eng. tr., Liturgical Prayer, its History and Spirit, 1922), Les Origines liturgiques (1906), and L'Angleterre chrétienne avant les Normands (1909). His edition of the Roman Missal, with Eng. tr. and notes [1921], was widely used.
