Quick Reference

The medieval modification of the Roman rite used in the cathedral church at Salisbury, traditionally ascribed to St Osmund. The Customary, i.e. the cathedral statutes and customs and a complete directory of services, was compiled by Richard Poore (d. 1237). The ‘New Use of Sarum’ was a 14th-cent revision. In the later Middle Ages the Sarum Use was followed in many other dioceses; it provided the main material for the First (1549) BCP.
