The Society has the great pleasure to announce the visit to New York and Connecticut of Martin Mosebach and Father Uwe Michael Lang.
Martin Mosebach is an eminent German novelist and essayist. In October of this year he will receive the Georg Buechner prize-the highest German literary award. Mr. Mosebach has written and spoken extensively on Catholic issues, particularly relating to the Traditional liturgy. His Heresy of Formlessness, on the liturgy, was published in English translation last year by Ignatius Press.
Father Lang is a priest of the Brompton Oratory in London and the author of an influential study on the position of the celebrant in the Roman rite: Turning towards the Lord: Orientation in Liturgical Prayer.

Lang and Mr. Mosebach will be speaking at three separate locations. Fr. Lang will introduce Mr. Mosebach and situate his work for us in the context of the post-Summorum Pontificum world.
