Record Type: concept
portable altars (altars (religious fixtures), <altars and altar components>, ... Components (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Altars that are of relatively small size and transportable, often fitting into a container along with other items for worship or services. In Christian contexts, examples include consecrated altar stones set in a case or otherwise mounted, used by priests who travel from location to location saying Mass where a permanent consecrated altar may not be available. Specifications included that it should be a solid piece of natural stone of a type and size resistant to fracture, consecrated by a bishop, large enough to hold the host and chalice, and designed so that it may be inserted in or placed on a table convenient for the service. For transportable versions of Christian painted or carved image-bearing objects of the type displayed on or above an altar, use "portable altarpieces."

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Altaren, van relatief kleine omvang en draagbaar die vaak passen in een container samen met andere voorwerpen voor de eredienst of diensten. In de christelijke context, zijn voorbeelden gewijde altaa stenen die in een houder of op andere wijze aangebracht. Werden gebruikt door priesters die van locatie naar locatie reisden om de mis te houden waar een permanent gewijd altaar niet beschikbaar was. Specificaties zijn dat het een massief stuk natuursteen van een type en formaat moest zijn dat bestand tegen breuken was, ingewijd door een bisschop, groot genoeg om de hosties en de kelk te houden, en zo ontworpen dat het kan worden gebruikt in of op een tafel voor de dienst. Voor verplaatsbare versies van christelijke geschilderde of gesneden beeld-dragende objecten van het type weergegeven werd op of boven een altaar, gebruik "draagbare altaarstukken." 
Italian ..... Pietra d'altare consacrata, mobile, utilizzata per celebrare la messa su un arredo o su un altare non consacrato; è generalmente inserita in una cornice o in un supporto che puù avere forma di cofanetto.
