Mozarabic Rite

Also known as

  • Toletan Rite
  • Isidorian Rite

Article

The rite used in Spain, and in what later became Portugal, from about the 6th to the latter part of the 11th century. It is known also as

  • Gothic, due to its development during the time of the Visigothic Kingdom of Spain
  • Toletan, from Toledo which was its center
  • Isidorian, because it probably received a revision by Saint Isidore of Seville

It is of common origin and of nearly identical construction with the Gallican Rite, and is still used in Mass and Office by a college of chaplains at Toledo, in a chapel of the cathedral.
