Through My Lens: Aachener Dom Pulpit

I’m by no means a short person, so judging by the angle from which I took this photo, my best guess is this pulpit is at least ten feet off the floor of the Aachener Dom. Quite an imposing perch from which to preach a sermon or read from the gospels.

The pulpit is sometimes referred to as the Ambon of Henry II. Ambon simply means pulpit. Henry II was another of the Holy Roman Emperors, who ruled from 1014 to 1024, some two hundred years after Charlemagne.

The pulpit is just to the right of the altar of the Aachener Dom and is my photo choice for today, Palm Sunday.
