I would like to see this in Verbum/Logos in a multi-denominational format http://www.bible-researcher.com/lectionary1.html . One can simply treat denominational differences as options. This approach would make the lectionary serve the needs of a much broader audience and justify the expense of development.

Humm...interesting.  Who is the "broader audience" this lectionary would serve?  We have a good many lectionaries produced already.

The one year lectionary from a historical point of view is of great interest to me and I think other Anglicans/Lutherans would also find it interesting especially in comparison to the one year lutheran lectionary. I have an iOS app that I hav3 simply for the ability to utilize the tridentone readings. I have often lamented that I cannot access them via Verbum.  You have numerous Anglican lectionaries and a few Lutheran ones I would think this has more interest than the 1928 lectionary or the North American Anglican one.

Dan,

Forgive my ignorance.  What do you mean when you say "I have simply for the ability to utilize the tridentone readings."  Clearly I'm missing something here.  What is the question of access that you mention?

I was thinking broader than the Tridentine ....Primarily it provides the context for a broad swath of historic sermons, not just Catholic AND it provides the historical context for most Western lectionaries.

I can easily name several basic and interesting contemporary lectionaries that are missing ... Jewish, Moravian, Lutheran daily, German with additional preaching texts, Eastern Rite Catholic, Ambrosian/Moazarbic Catholics  .... but then I think lectionaries provide a very useful insight into it's users' understanding of scripture and its use.

When I want to check out pre Vatican II readings I use an app that allows for either tridentine readings or modern. I just think that there are enough Catholic users who would like access to traditional readings to make it worth well adding them as well as this medieval set.
