monstrances (liturgical containers, ceremonial containers, ... Furnishings and Equipment (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Christian liturgical vessels in which the Host (the bread consecrated in the Eucharist) may be displayed through an opening or through a transparent material; used either on an altar or in processions. It is usually made of gold or silver and is often decorated with precious stones. From the Baroque period onwards the Host is typically surrounded by a sunburst design. Modern usage has limited the meaning to vessels intended for the exposition of the Host; however the term was originally applied to all kinds of vessels of goldsmith's or silversmith's work in which glass or crystal were used to allow the contents to be readily visible, whether the contents were the Host, a relic of a saint, or another object. Distinguished from "pyxes," which are vessels used to hold the reserved Host on the altar or to carry the Eucharist to the sick.

Additional Notes:
Chinese (traditional) ..... 基督教禮拜儀式器皿,透過開口或透明物質,可在其中展示聖體(聖餐時聖化的麵包);用於聖餐臺或宗教遊行。通常以金或銀製成,且常飾以寶石。自巴洛克時期以降,聖體即往往被陽光四射的圖案圍繞。現代用法則將其意義限縮於供展示聖體的器皿;但本詞彙原指金匠或銀匠所製之所有種類的器皿,其所含的玻璃或水晶是為了讓內容物能立即可見,無論內容物為聖體、聖人遺物或其他物體。與「聖體容器」的區別在於,後者是用於在聖餐臺上容納儲備的聖體,或將聖餐攜帶至病患處。 
Dutch ..... Houders waarin de geconsacreerde hostie wordt uitgestald op een altaar of tijdens een processie. In de regel (deels) van edelmetaal en op voet met stam. Te onderscheiden van 'pyxides'; dit zijn houders zonder stam gebruikt voor de grote hostie op het altaar of om de geconsacreerde hosties naar de zieken buiten de kerk te dragen. 
Italian ..... Vaso per l'esposizione del Sacramento. Realizzato prevalentemente in materiali preziosi, è costituito da una teca trasparente con una lunetta (lunetta di ostensorio) o con due dischi di vetro per sostenere l'ostia (teca-lunetta), durante l'ostensione, al centro di una montatura generalmente elaborata, posta su di un piede e sormontata da una crocetta.  
Spanish ..... Úsese para vasijas litúrgicas cristianas en las cuales la hostia consagrada puede mostrarse, ya sea en un altar o en una procesión. Diferente de "píxide", que son vasijas para guardar las hostias consagradas en el altar o para llevar la eucaristía a los enfermos.
