aspergilla (liturgical objects, religious objects, ... Object Genres (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Instruments, usually of metal attached to an absorbent material, for the sprinkling of holy water. In the Western church, the aspergillum is composed of a handle surmounted by a perforated ball, sponge, or brush-like end to hold water. Some have sponges or internal reservoirs that dispense holy water when shaken, while others must periodically be dipped in "aspersoriums (vessels)." The tool was originally made of branches of hyssop, palm, or boxwood, wisps of straw, or the tail of a fox (in Old French the fox was called "goupil"). By the 13th century the aspergillum assumed the modern Western form of a handle surmounted by a rose-shape covered with bristles; the handles of the sprinklers came to be very richly ornamented. In the Greek Orthodox Church the aspergillum is a standing vessel with a tapering lid perforated with holes for sprinkling; in the Russian Orthodox Church, it is a whisk made of cloth, hair, or sprigs of basil. The tool was derived from ancient sources, where branches were used to sprinkle water, blood, or another liquid in rituals. Such tools were used in ancient Rome, the Middle East, ancient Norse rituals, and elsewhere.

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Instrumenten voor het besprenkelen met wijwater, meestal van metaal dat is bevestigd aan een absorberend materiaal. In de westerse kerk bestaat de wijwaterkwast uit een steel met daarop een geperforeerde bol, spons of borstelachtig uiteinde dat het water bevat. Sommige wijwaterkwasten hebben sponzen of interne reservoirs die wijwater afgeven als ermee wordt geschud, terwijl andere regelmatig moeten worden ondergedompeld in 'wijwatervaten (vaten)'. Het werktuig werd oorspronkelijk gemaakt van takken van hysop-, palm- of bukshout, een bosje stro of de staart van een vos (in het oud-Frans heet een vos een 'goupil'). In de 13de eeuw nam de wijwaterkwast zijn moderne westerse vorm aan van een steel met daarop een met haren bedekte rozenvorm. De stelen van het sprenkelgedeelte werden zeer rijk versierd. In de Grieks-orthodoxe kerk is de wijwaterkwast een rechtopstaand vat met een taps deksel, waarin gaten zijn aangebracht voor de besprenkeling. In de Russisch-orthodoxe Kerk is het een kwast die is gemaakt van stof, haar of takjes basilicum. Het werktuig is gebaseerd op oude bronnen, waarbij takken werden gebruikt om tijdens rituelen water, bloed of een andere vloeistof te sprenkelen. Dergelijke werktuigen werden gebruikt in het oude Rome, in het Midden-Oosten, bij oude Noorse rituelen en elders.

Le goupillon s'accompagne toujours d'un seau á eau bénite.
