Not illustrated. 1855 edition. Excerpt: ...vero collectam seu orationem, nonnunquam dismissionem significat. 24 An. 34. n. 59. (t. 1. p. 160 c.).... Cum multa sint hujus sacrificii nomina, illud est antiquissimum, et apud Latinos usitatius atque fre quentius, Missa; quod quidem (sicut et Christiana fides profitetur) ex Hebraica vel Chaldaica nomenclatura acceptum esse videtur. Quod enim in nostra Vulgata legitur, spontanea oblatio, Deut. 16. Hebraice et Chaldaice dicitur, missah, quam offerebant Domino, in gratiarum actionem de fructibus terns, qua et vescebantur in templo cum recordatione praeteritae servitutis, et ab eadem liberationis. Qua; quidem omnia cum optime conveniant prtedicto a Christo institute sacrificio; eo potius majores nostri usi sunt nomine, quam cujuspiam alterius sacrificii: nam et ea potissimum ratione ab illis id factum esse videtur, quod spontanea recolatur prima ilia sui ipsius a Domino nostra Jesu Christo facta oblatio, &c. John Reuclin or Genebrard, would have it come from the Hebrew word missah, an oblation; but Durantus 26 has a good reason against that; because, if it had been of Hebrew extraction, the Greeks would have retained it in their language, as they do the words Hosanna, Sabaoth, Allelujah, and Amen: whereas there is no Greek writer uses it till the time of Leo Sapiens, who first borrows it from the Latin, in his Tactics. Albaspinseus has still a wilder conjecture; he says2?, the word mess, among the northern nations, signifies a festival, and therefore he imagines the name missa and mass might come from that: which is only to invert the origination, and make the daughter to become the mother; since it is evident, the name mess comes from missa, and not missa from that. Cardinal Bona 28 takes Reuchlin, otherwise called Capnio, an eminent more
