Altar-linen

Altar-Linen those linen cloths, three in number, which are used to cover the altar-slab. The first is a cloath duly prepared with melted wax (hence called the altar- cerecloth); the second is a cloth to protect this first cloth; and the last is the cloth of linen which. placed over the top of the altar, hangs down to the ground, or nearly so, at either end of the altar.
