  • Liturgicum mysterium colendum semperque fovendum


"Like God’s gift to his Church, the tree of the Liturgy comes forth and grows.
Like a wise gardener, the Church accompanies this growth, making it evermore fruitful for the life of God’s people.
Like a grateful child, every faithful is called to wonder before this divine gift, contemplating it for greater knowledge and delight."

Through the Biblioteca di iniziazione alla Liturgia (BIL), the Institute of Liturgy of the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross seeks to offer a series of popular scientific works addressed to a wide readership interested in themes concerning the liturgical celebration.

Mistagogia dei Sacramenti

Veritatem inquirere was born in 2016, the result of academic agreements between the Pontifical Lateran University and Mikołaja Kopernika University in Toruń. Starting in 2021, the series nova opens as the outcome of the collaboration between Pontifical University of the Holy Cross and the University of Toruń.

Nicholas Copernicus' expression "Veritatem inquirere" indicates the direction of the publications: the search and deepening of the truth through the knowledge of history offers privileged opportunities to continue building that Christian humanism that has been invoked on many sides.

The liturgical sphere in which most of the works are placed is not meant to be an exclusion of other spheres, but an opportunity to help grasp how liturgical documentation constitutes an opportunity to deepen the culture and languages of Christian communities that entrusted the content of their faith to the codices and their illustrations.
