Doesn't it make you want to step out and give a speech?
Lovely colors.

I think I asked you before it you know why they put pulpits up high like that. It has nothing to do with being seen. It puts the priest at least 8 feet above criticism!

I have often wondered what these were for.

The colours in this are very interesting. Are the orange and yellow some sort of paint effect?

The pulpit is not the only work of art here...

I've noticed that about pulpits in old churches here too. No way they'll be able to accommodate the big, fat priests nowadays.

Love the tiles and marbling.
