To illustrate my point about the rules governing the height at which a Cathedra may be erected and its relation to the height of the High Altar, I am enclosing a photograph of the sanctuary of the Cathedral of St. AndrÃ© in Bordeaux. You will notice that the Cathedra is raised on a dias on three steps while the High Altar is raised on four higher steps. Also, the red colour indicates that the present Archbishop of Bordeaux is a Cardinal of the Holy Roman Church. The aquiline ambo is placed at the altar rail which is of fine 18th century wrought iron for which Bordeaux is famous.
