0,00 €


The pulpit is a characteristic element of Transylvanian church furnishing. In the development and spreading process of pulpits known today, a crucial role was played by the mendicant and preaching orders, who put an emphasis on sermons that could be well heard and seen by larger masses. The pulpit was usually placed on the northern side of the nave, at its meeting
point with the chancel, or it adjoined the nave’s northern wall; being set upon a base or a projecting corbel and topped by a
sounding board.
