York Use is a term employed to designate that ritual which, taking its name from the cathedral of York, was commonly used in the northern province of England prior to the Reformation. Printed editions of the York Ritual were issued in A.D. 1516, 1518, and 1532. In the main it differs but slightly from that of Salisbury — first, in the manner of making the first oblation; and, secondly, in the words used by the priest in partaking of the sacrament. Other minor differences exist, but they are unimportant. See Usn.
