Abbey Church virtual tour
living word of God is often symbolized by the eagle in traditional
Christian Church art. An eagle parallels the word in power, in vision,
and in grasp, and so, in the Abbey Church, it is from behind an eagle
that the word of God is proclaimed.
The model for this lectern was found in Seattle’s Woodland Park Zoo, and
the lectern was crafted by Robert Stanton.
