    Libro de Oración Común
The 1928 Book of Common Prayer in Spanish (1955)

 

The 1928 Edition was the third Spanish Prayer Book produced by the U. S. Episcopal Church. The generic nature of the prayers for the President and Congress in this book indicate that it was primarily intended for use outside the United States, in areas of Latin America where the local Anglican Church was part of the U. S. Episcopal Church. This included (at the time this book was published) Mexico, Central America, parts of the West Indies, and Northern South America. Prior to this, Spanish editions had been issued of the 1789 BCP (published 1860), and of the 1892 (published 1905).

The copy used here has no publication data (other than the words "The National Council" you see on the title page at right), and there is no certificate. It appears to be completely identical to the 1928 U. S. Book, with the exception of some of the prayers noted above. There is an inscription in my copy dated 1955, and the book appears identical in size, format, and typography, to copies of the 1928 BCP from that time. It is listed in David Griffiths' Bibliography of the Book of Common Prayer as 162:18 (with an obviously incorrect date of 1962).

Another copy I have seen, dated 1962, states that it is for the use of:

LA IGLESIA EPISCOPAL
en las Américas

rather than the Protestant Episcopal Church of the U. S., as on the title page at right. The book appears to be otherwise identical. Other books which vary only in the title are stated to be for the use of La Iglesia Episcopal and La Iglesia Episcopal Mexicana.

Additionally, another edition (Griffiths 162:17) was issued previously in 1930 by the SPCK. This book is given separately as PDF graphics.

As I am not well-versed in Spanish, I would, as usual, appreciate any and all corrections and comments.
