Eucharistic cupboard door panel

LS 4648 – 4649

Date : XVIe | Medium : Wrought iron openwork and riveted

Southern France

The openwork portion of the small door was housed in the outer wall of the sanctuary so that the host lit by a candle could be seen from the cemetery around the church. It is therefore a tabernacle grid; in fact it was in the seventeenth century that tabernacles were placed in the centre of the altar.
