Crystal Reading Stand

Recently I was in Europe and beheld this wonderful reading stand at the back of the Abbey Cathedral in St. Gallen, Switzerland. Displayed on it is an illustrated gospel manuscript (located on both sides of the stand). I share it with you because it struck me as being quite Pagan, yet it is found in a Cathedral. The large crystals are marvelous and add a sense of majesty and power to the display. Wonder who commissioned this beautiful work of art? Enjoy!
