Consignatorium As the act of blessing by the use of the sign of the cross, e.g. in confirmation, is termed consignare, hence the word consignatorium is occasionally used to designate the place set apart for that rite. Bishop John of Naples (about 616) is said to have erected a beautiful building, called consignatorium ablutarum, so arranged that the newly baptized should pass in on one side, be presented to the bishop, who sat in the midst, and then pass out by the other side.
