Of course, let’s not forget that the use of the Ambo is a revival and not an invention. Some might regard it as an example of archaeologism or historicization. As a revival, it fits vey well with the historiographical theory of Andreas Jungmann which regard the 7th century as the apogee of the golden age of the Roman Rite. By that time, of course, the Ambo was ubiquituous in both Eastern and Western Christianity. GIven that the same historiography influenced many of those involved in the liturgical renewal of the 1960s and 1970s, it comes as no surprise that it shoud have been promoted as the place par excellence for the proclamation of the Word of God.
