The name of tabernacle comes from late latin tabernaculum = curtain, which comes from taberna, which means “little house composed by wooden boards = tabellae”. It is the most important place of the church, as it holds the Holy Body of Christ. It is the place of God’s House, for that reason it must be characteristic, peculiar, beautiful, realized with good materials and refined technique. In the moment of Eucharistic, the minister takes out from tabernacle the hosts hold inside the ciborium to be distribuited to worshippers.
