This chapter focuses on the development of the seventh-century Roman sacramentary and lectionary, shedding light on the contemporary antiphoner. The chants make up just one element in developing Roman Mass Proper, but there are also prayers and readings. The prayers, that is, the variable orations read by the celebrant, such as the collect, secret, and post-communion, are contained, along with other material for sacerdotal use, such as Proper prefaces and the Ordinary of the Mass, in liturgical books called sacramentaries. There are three possible ways to compile a lectionary, the most primitive of which is simply to supply marginal indications of some sort in a biblical text. The second possibility is the listing of incipits and explicits at the front or back of the scriptural book, or in a separate libellus. The third way is to write out the pericopes in full, and in this type of lectionary, the term comes (companion) or liber comitis is generally applied.
