Note: The feast of the Immaculate Conception had its origin in the rites of the eastern church, and was brought to western Europe from the Greek communities in Sicily in the 9th century. In England it was perhaps known before the Norman Conquest (1066); The "Tractatus de conceptione S. Marie" attributed to Eadmer (d.1124) influenced the spread of the cult. The papal court in Avignon celebrated the feast on December 8. Pope Sixtus IV, approved the inclusion of the feast in the curial Roman missal in the 1476, which led to an almost immediate acceptance all over the church from 1477.
