    • The mass, breviary, etc approved by Pius V in 1570. Other Latin rites approved at that time. (e.g., the Dominican rite). That is what historians, other scholars, and musicologists mean by the term. The term is synonymous with the term “Roman rite.” (Check under those two terms to identify and perhaps purchase academic books on the Western European liturgy. Thousands are available.)

      But, If some current-day liturgist insists, since they are descended (indirectly) from the Latin rite, one could include the official version (which is in Latin) of the Vatican 2 liturgy. To push it further, translations of the Vatican 2 liturgy approved by national bishop’s conferences and also by the Vatican. But the latter would not be what an historian would expect me to be talking about if I used the term “Latin rite”

      No one knows what non-academics think the terms means. Since no one ever surveys the views of those in the pews.
