medieval-religion: Scholarly discussions of medieval religion and culture




Jubé n.m. (Archit.)
Clôture analogue à l'iconostase des églises grecques, séparant le choeur
de la nef, et surmontée d'une galerie.
  Ce portique apparait en France à la fin du XIIe s.
Il procède à la fois du chancel, des ambons, ainsi que du tref des 
anciennes basiliques chrétiennes, et du doxal des églises antérieures 
au XIIe s.
Le nom de 'Jubé' lui vient du premier mot de la formule par laquelle
le lecteur placé dans la galerie demandait au célébrant la bénédiction
avant de lire : 'Jube Domne benedicere' *)

-All. Doxale, Lettner.
angl. choir screen, jube
esp. ambón romano
ital. pontile tramezzo

GLOSSAIRE, Zodiaque, 2.éd. 1971, p.271

*) Please notice the analogy with the settings of the old
Byzantine 'Trisagion' rite, leading up to the solemn gospel reading.
[Just a shared note for my own recollection of a long forgotten pensum].
