A.D . 1188. PRAYERS FOR THE LAND OF JERUSALEM. 103 fell from his horse into the river, and was the only person drowned. Accordingly, they drew him on shore, and there disembowelled him ; after which, his entrails, brains, and flesh, which had been boiled in water, and thus separated from the bones, were buried in the city of Antioch. His bones being wrapped in clean linen, Conrad, duke of Suabia, his son, carried them with him to the city of Tyre,9 8 where he buried them. ' In the same year, it was enacted by our lord the pope and the cardinals that prayers should be put up to the Lord by the Church Universal, without intermission, for the peace and deliveranceof the land of Jerusalem and of the Christian captives who were confined in chains by the Saracens. Mass was performed each day in the church of Saint Paul in the following form : when the priest had said " Pax Domini sit semper vobiscum" \the peace of the Lord be with you always], and the choir had made answer " Et cum spiri tuo tuo" [and with thy spirit], before the " Agnus Dei" [the Lamb of God] was begun, the priest or prœcentor commenced with this antiphone, " Tua est potentia, tuum regnum. Domine, tu es super omnes gentes. Da pacem, Domine, in diebusnostris" [Thine is thepower, thine is the kingdom. 0 Lord ! thou art above all nations'. Grant peace, 0 Lord, in our days.] On the Lord's day, this was ac companied with the following Psalm, beginning " Quare fre mueunt gentes' ' [ Why do the heathen rage ?] ;9 9 on Monday, with this Psalm, " Deus, in nomine tuo, salvum me fac" [Save me, 0 God, by thy name];1 on Tuesday, with this Psalm, "Deus repu listi nos et destruxisti?" [OGod, Why hast thou cast us out ?] 3 on Wednesday, with this Psalm, "Ut quid Deus, repulisti in finem?" [ 0 God, why hast thou east us offfor ever ?] 3 on Thursday, with this Psalm, " Deus, venerunt gentes in hsereditatem tuam" [0 God, the heathen are come into thine inheritance] ;4 on Priday, wit this Psalm, " Deus quis similis erit tibi" [God, who shall be like unto Thee f]s and on Saturday, with this Psalm, " Deus, ultionum Dominus" [0 Lord God, to wfan vengeance belongeth].' After having repeated these Psalms and the antiphone beforementioned, the " Kyrie eleison, Christc eleison, Kyrie eleison "'was to follow, and then the "Paternoster" and the prayer " Et ne nos ' 8 [after which the following sentences were 9 8 Menzel, Hist.
