Author of the Liturgy of the Presanctified Gifts

Who wrote the Liturgy of the Presanctified Gifts?

April 21, 2021

The Divine Liturgy of the Presanctified Gifts is an undeniable gem of the Lenten services of the Orthodox Church. One cannot understand the spirit of the Great Lent if one does not attend this special Liturgy at least once, especially in the statutory evening hours. During each celebration of this liturgical service, the name of its supposed author St Gregory the Great, Bishop of Rome is pronounced at the dismissal. However, is the ascription of this Eastern-spirited service to a Western saint and the Western liturgical tradition really justified?
