Church tabernacle

A tabernacle is a fixed, locked box in which, in some Christian churches, the Eucharist is "reserved". A less obvious container for the same purpose, set into a wall, is called an aumbry. Within Catholicism, Eastern Orthodoxy and in some congregations of Anglicanism and Lutheranism, a tabernacle is a box-like vessel for the exclusive reservation of the consecrated Eucharist, it is made of metal, stone or wood, is lockable and secured to its altar or adjacent wall to prevent the consecrated elements within from being removed without authorization. The "reserved Eucharist" is secured there for distribution at services, for availability to bring Holy Communion to the sick, in the Western Church, as the center of attention for meditation and prayer; the term "tabernacle" arose for this item as a reference to the Old Testament tabernacle, the locus of God's presence among the Jewish people – hence, it was required that the tabernacle be covered with a tent-like veil or curtains across its door when the Eucharist is present within.

By way of metaphor and Orthodox alike refer to the Blessed Virgin Mary as the Tabernacle in their devotions, as she carried within her the body of Christ in her role as Theotokos. The following historical information is found, for instance, in the article The casing of the Eucharist by the Secretary of the Congregation for the Clergy, Archbishop Mauro Piacenza, who heads the Pontifical Commission for the Cultural Patrimony of the Catholic Church, in 30Days, No. 6 Year XXIII – June 2005. In early Christianity, priests and or lay people commissioned by them took bread consecrated at their Eucharist to their homes, in order to give it to the sick and others unable to attend the celebration, but when the Edict of Milan ended persecution, the early Church was allowed to practice its religion publicly, the Eucharist was no longer kept safeguarded in private Christian homes, but was reserved near the altars of churches The preferred containers, the original "tabernacles" had the form of a dove within a tower.

There is mention of a gift of these two vessels, both of gold and adorned with 250 white pearls, that the Emperor Constantine gave to Saint Peter’s Basilica in Rome, of silver towers and golden doves given to particular churches by Pope Innocent I and Pope Hilarius. The vessels were kept in a place called the "sacrarium" or "pastophorium" away from the central body of the church or were suspended by fine chains from the middle of the canopy above the altar of the church. Gian Lorenzo Bernini’s 29-metre-high Baroque baldacchino over the main altar in today’s Saint Peter’s Basilica is at present the best-known such structure. Simpler vessels replaced to some extent the dove and the tower. By the thirteenth century, the Eucharist was most kept in a embellished cabinet inserted into the wall to the right or left of the altar; the Altar lamp indicated the Presence of Christ. This was a means of following the decree of the 1215 Fourth Lateran Council requiring that the reserved sacrament be kept in a locked receptacle.

In the late fourteenth century, special stone constructions for the Eucharistic bread began to be built in northern Europe. In German and Netherlandish churches of the period, such structures can still be seen: tall towers, known in German as Sakramentshäuser, in Dutch as sacramentstorens placed to the north of the altar and reaching to the ceiling, they were in use until the mid-nineteenth century. As the presence of the sanctuary lamp in the adjacent picture shows, some have been returned to their traditional use. German examples are found in the church of St Lawrence in Nuremberg, the minster of Salem, Saints Peter and Paul city church in Weil der Stadt, the church of Our Lady in Lübeck, St Mary's Cathedral in Fürstenwalde upon Spree. Belgian churches with such sacrament towers include St Catherine's in Zuurbemde, St Martin's in Kortrijk, St Peter's and St James's in Leuven, St James's in Bruges and St Leonard's in Zoutleeuw. In the early sixteenth century, Bishop Matteo Giberti ordered that, in his diocese of Verona, in Italy, the container case for the consecrated bread should be placed on an altar.

The custom spread through northern Italy. Saint Charles Borromeo, who became Archbishop of Milan, Italy in 1560, had the Sacrament moved from the sacristy to an altar of his cathedral; the edition of the Roman Missal revised and promulgated by Pope Pius V in 1570 still did not envisage placing the tabernacle on an altar: it laid down instead that the altar card containing some of the principal prayers of the Mass should rest against a cross placed midway on the altar. However, in 1614 Pope Paul V imposed on the churches of his diocese of Rome the rule of putting the tabernacle on some altar. Reaction to Protestantism's denial of the reality and permanence of the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist led to the spread of the placing of the tabernacle on the high altar, so as to make it more evidently visible. Whether on the main altar of the church or in a special chapel, the tabernacle became more and more large and ornate, to the extent of dominating the altar; the Catholic Church holds the doctrine of transubstantiation, i.e. that Christ is "truly present and Blood, Soul and Divinity," though under the appearance of bread or wine.

This presence perdures after the consecration, so that after Mass is concluded, the Eucharistic elements

North Holland Blue

The North Holland Blue, Dutch:'Noord-Hollandse Blauwe' or Noord-Hollandse Hoen, is a Dutch breed of domestic chicken originating in the province of North Holland. It is a heavy meat breed, was created to supply the high demand for white chicken meat from the city of Amsterdam from the Jewish community in that city; the North Holland Blue was created in the area around Purmerend in about 1900 to supply the city of Amsterdam with white chicken-meat. It derives from the Belgian Malines. Malines birds had been imported for the purpose but did not do well in the poor conditions of North Holland, they were therefore crossed with local chickens. A breed standard was agreed in 1934 by the Noord-Hollandse Blauwenclub van Nederland, a breeders' association, in 1950 was adopted with minor changes by the Nederlandse Hoender en Dwerghoender Bond, the national association of poultry breeders. In the years after the Second World War the North Holland Blue was supplanted as a commercial meat breed by faster-growing imported American breeds.

The last large North Holland Blue farm closed in 1977. A bantam version was created in the Netherlands, but was first shown in Germany; the North Holland Blue is recognised in eight European countries. The North Holland Blue has Cuckoo, it has a quiet, docile temperament, lays 180–240 eggs per year. In the Netherlands and New Zealand it is clean-legged. List of chicken breeds
