Puniet de Parry, Pierre de


Benedictine liturgist, b. Rochefort, France, March 24, 1877; d. Abbey of Oosterhout, Holland, April 4,1941. De Puniet, who was of a noble family of Anjou, made his profession at Solesmes on Dec. 8, 1895. Ordained on March 23, 1901, he was sent to the Abbey of Farnborough and attached to Dom Cabrol's circle. For a while he collaborated on the Dictionnaire d'archéologie chrétienne et de liturgie. The conference he gave at the Westminster Eucharistic Congress in 1908 on the Dêr Balyzeh of such importance for the early history of the Massmade his reputation as a liturgist. Though novice master of Oosterhout for 25 years (191742), he was nonetheless able to continue his scholarly writing. His chief work, Le Sacramentaire romain de Gellone (Rome 1938), is actually less well known than either Le Pontifical romain: Histoire et commentaire, 2 v. (Bruges-Paris 193031), of which the first volume was translated into English as The Roman Pontifical (New York 1932), or Le Psautier liturgique à la lumière de la tradition chrétienne, 2 v. (Bruges-Paris 193335).

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
