altar step

Isaac Kremer/ September 9, 2018/ / 0 comments

One of the steps which lead up from the floor of the choir or sanctuary to the platform upon which the altar stands. It is usually considered that there should be three of these steps, but in large churches they are frequently more numerous. These steps are not to be confounded with the flight leading up to the sanctuary itself in cases where it is higher than the neighboring floors of the church. Photo from Florence, Italy, 2018.
