A: Though Pope Saint Pius V, in his apostolic constitution Quo Primum, promised the wrath of Saints Peter and Paul upon anyone who would attempt to change the Missale Romanum of , the Tridentine Missal did in fact undergo many minor and sometimes even major alterations before it reached the form in use today in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite. In , Pope Clement VIII recognized that in the mere thirty-five years since the publication of the Missale Romanum many editorial changes were made by independent publishers without permission, particularly in relation to certain ancient scriptural citations from the Old Latin versions. Publishers were rendering these texts according to the official Vulgate edition. Pope Clement ordered that these texts be restored to their more ancient versions. Though no rubrical changes occurred, he also ordered some rubrics be re-worded to be more understandable.

This sad anniversary is an opportunity to retrace its history. Before considering the liturgical reform of Paul VI and the new mass, it is worth going through the history of the Roman missal, because his reform claims to be the homogeneous development of the past. Which is absolutely questionable. The historical step back makes it easy to see. The first and second parts of this historical overview recounted the development of the Roman missal, then the work of the Council of Trent and Pope Saint Pius V, up to the sixteenth century.
Let us now consider the evolution of the liturgy in the period that followed. The diffusion of the Tridentine liturgy was general at first. But in the second phase, the awakening of particularisms provoked a certain return to the division which reigned before the Council of Trent, especially in France. This country gladly accepted the Roman books issued by the Council of Trent and even contributed to the beginnings of liturgical studies.
Some bishops, inspired by Jansenist or Gallican sentiments and contrary to the liturgical law in force at that time, wanted to reform the missal, the breviary, and the other liturgical books. They modified, added to, deducted from, and composed new liturgical texts. The authors, sometimes the least recommendable, were invited to compose breviaries and missals into which it was easy to slip in their mistakes or, more simply, to manifest their spirit.
The ritual of Alet, the Vienna breviary, the missal and breviary of Paris and several other dioceses were reworked and, in more than one case, Jansenist or Gallican errors crept into these books.
Another drawback was the introduction of significant differences between the dioceses, so that at the time of the French Revolution, the confusion was at its height. This concern was such that the bishop of Troyes, a nephew of Bossuet, unleashed a tempest in when he decided to say the Canon submissiori voce in a lower voice than the other parts of the Mass instead of secreto in a low voice and proposed to remove the cross and the candlesticks from the altar.
The French or Romano-French diocesan missals were published between and , in a rather anarchic manner. Of the dioceses in France in , 57 dioceses had had a special liturgy since the end of the 17th century and more than 80 dioceses had abandoned the Roman liturgy by the eve of the Revolution. This wind of reform gave birth to two families of Missals.
This Missal remains in continuity with the Roman Missal. Ordinarily, the readings and collects are not modified. On the other hand, while they took it easy with the Gradual and the secrets, the post-communions, and the commons of the saints; the masses ad diversa for special circumstances would undergo substantial changes.
They still remain in force today in the dioceses of France. The Paris Missal alone was adopted by more than 50 dioceses in the 18th and 19th centuries, but most were published under their respective names with local variations.
Less widespread were various "themed missals" inspired by the Troyes Missal of The forms were chosen according to the Gospel, which usually remained identical to that of the Roman Missal. But for the rest, they presented more radical changes and increasingly distanced themselves from the Roman Rite.
The point of view was often moralistic as the bishops then being more attentive to morality than to dogma. While the influence of Gallicanism or Jansenism in this French adaptation of the Tridentine spirit should not be exaggerated, the unity desired by the Council of Trent was compromised, at least in France. In this way, Pierre Jounel could write that the Vatican II reforms are largely dependent on the liturgical book revision movement of the 17th and 18th centuries. But what he wrote as a compliment was actually an accusation.

It appears in typical editions of the Roman Missal published from to The edition promulgated by Pope John XXIII in the last to bear the indication ex decreto Sacrosancti Concilii Tridentini restitutum and Mass celebrated in accordance with it are described in the motu proprio Summorum Pontificum as an authorized form of the Church's liturgy, and this form of the Tridentine Mass is often spoken of as the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite. In response to a decision of that council,  Pope Pius V promulgated the Roman Missal, making it mandatory throughout the Latin Church , except in places and religious orders with missals from before In , Pope Benedict XVI issued the motu proprio Summorum Pontificum , accompanied by a letter to the world's bishops, authorizing use of the Tridentine Mass by all Latin Rite Catholic priests in Masses celebrated without the people. These Masses "may — observing all the norms of law — also be attended by faithful who, of their own free will, ask to be admitted". Benedict stated that the edition of the Roman Missal is to be considered an "extraordinary form" forma extraordinaria  of the Roman Rite, of which the Mass of Paul VI is the ordinary, normal or standard form.
