Corporax Cups

Corporax Cups are vessels of precious metal, suspended by a chain under a canopy, and used for the reservation of the eucharist for the sick. They sometimes took the form of a tiara of crowns, in allusion to Re 19:12, and were covered often by a thin veil of silk or inuslin, called the "kerchief of cobweb lawn." At Durham it was of very fine lawn, embroidered with gold and red silk, and finished with four knobs and tassels. That used by St. Cuthbert formed the banner carried to victory at the Red Hills.
