Details

This brief, but comprehensive work presents a supernatural approach to understanding the center of Catholic life, the altar. Considered by some to be “the bible" on the subject of the altar, this book covers its historical development, form, symbolism, and vesting, as well as it appurtenances, such as the cross, candles, use of flowers and reliquaries. "This book is also an inestimable resource from a practical aspect, in so far as it demonstrates how to construct a proper altar that conforms to the Church’s prescriptions and ideals without exhausting the parish coffers." Mr. Webb’s magnificently composed text is complimented with pictorial examples of altars and line drawings that demonstrate how to implement what he outlines. A timeless classic, this book will be of great general interest to any Catholic, lay or cleric, particularly church architects, liturgical artists, sacristans, those involved in liturgical functions, altar and rosary sodalities, florists, altar vesture manufactures, as well as religion teachers for all ages. Second edition, 1948.
