Antependium

Additional Links

(antependium - Latin: ante, before; pendere, hang)

An appendage covering the entire front of the altar; a similar covering should be used at the back if it be seen by the people. It may be made of precious metals, wood, cloth of gold, or other precious materials. If the altar be of carved wood or marble it may be considered sufficiently ornamental, and the antependium deemed unnecesary.
