It began among RC religious communities (often dated from an address by Benedictine L. Beauduin in 1909) with efforts to make assembly for worship the main place where people learn and grow in faith.
Liturgical Movement. C20 Movement of which the object was an increasing involve-ment of the laity in worship. It brought the altar nearer the congregation, physically and visually, and involved considerable reordering of church interiors, often (but not always) to the detriment of the architecture.
