Thanks for the lovely picture of Adam and Eve’s, Dublin.

It s interesting from a number of poits of view:

1. Cleraly, there was a tradition of using hangings -at least in this church – in Ireland. As we can see, there are quite elaborate and reminiscent of those used in the Roman churches – a few of which continue to use them, most notably the Chiesa Nuova.

2. Liturgically, this is an excellent example of the Missa Pontificalis ad faldistorio, i.e. the High Mass celebrated by a bishop who is not the bishop of the diocese in which he is celebrating or who is an auxiliary bishop in the diocese where he celebrates – hence, he is not entitled usually to the use of a throne and therefore uses the faldstool which, as we saw much earlier in this thread, has its origins in the faldstool of the Roman Consul which indicated jurisdiction. It is clear from the potograph that the ceremonies are carried out to a high standard and include all of the ministers necessary for this form of the Mass. As far as Praxiteles is aware, the last time such was celebrated in Dublin was on 14 July 2010 at St Kevin’s in Harrington Street.

3. Does anyone know how much of the sanctuary survives?
