Missals bring together in one place all the components needed for the celebration of mass, from various liturgical sources. Although they do not always contain the music used, missals even without music, particularly those that predate the Council of Trent, are important for documenting diverse local practices. One goal of the Council was to establish uniformity in celebration of the mass and editions of the reformed missal were distributed as a result. Although this volume post dates the Council, its manuscript supplement may provide valuable information about the practices in Constance, which had the reputation of being very independent. The missal contains many woodcuts and is printed in black and red throughout.
