This study is intended to introduce a pioneering project called Missalia that should serve to enable the analysis and comparison of the Mass proper as a whole, including not only the chanted parts in the strict sense, but also the so-called euchological material, and the corpus of lessons. Given that they belong to the same system, their analysis is indispensable for the interpretation of musical sources, because the layer of the Gradual in its entirety is far less variable than that of the Sacramentary or the Lectionary. Some new principles and methods are proposed in order to describe and classify the Mass proper of medieval liturgical uses, pre-eminently the necessity of a Europe-wide sampling and the importance of early printed material. As a case study, a recent discovery is presented which demonstrates a close and exclusive link between the euchological layers of the late printed Missals of Regensburg and Zagreb. This relationship can be traced back to, and becomes even more obvious in the early 13th century, and a conclusion can be drawn that it originated in the first decades of the 11th century. In this period, and in this period only, is it feasible to suppose that Regensburg exerted a strong influence on the composition of the early Hungarian Sacramentary.
