Rites and Rituals of the Coptic Orthodox Church
Dictionary of Coptic Orthodox Church Terms and Terminology
* The Latin word "pulpitum" means "platform."
* An elevated stand of stone or wood for the preacher or reader to stand on.
* In early Christian times the bishop preached from his cathedra. Later the ambo was used for the sermon and in still later times the rood-loft. Except in cathedrals the north side of the nave is considered the proper place for the pulpit.
