Taylor Marshall Repeats an Error

Taylor Marshall continues to repeat the mistaken belief that Archbishop Annibale Bugnini was the architect of the liturgical reforms of the mid-1950s.

Repeating this claim, after being told it is inaccurate, shows that Marshall does not listen to criticism. It also questions how seriously he takes scholarship.
