Ravello, and probably dates from about 1130.

Pulpit in the Church of S. Giovanni, Ravello.

The church of San Giovanni del Toro also dates from the time of King Roger. The story of Jonah will be seen again depicted here.

Ambo in S. Lorenzo fuori le Mura, Rome.

The Basilica of S. Lorenzo fuori le Mura was originally only an oratory over the Catacombs of S. Cyriaca, and was said to have been founded by Constantine about A.D. 330. It was enlarged and partly rebuilt in the fifth and sixth centuries, and in 1216 was again remodeled by Honorius III, who built the present long nave and its portico, raised the chancel, and filled up with rubbish the lower church. It is thus a grand collection of details of various periods, but all of much interest.

Its two ambos stand on each side of the raised portion of the floor which corresponds to the choir in the Basilica of Honorius. The Gospel was chanted from the one on the south side with the reading desk turned towards the choir; and the Epistle from the one on the north, with a single desk towards the high altar. Before the Gospel ambo is a fine mosaic candelabrum standing on a Roman cippus reversed, having an olive branch and birds sculptured on it.

The pavement as well as the work upon these two ambos is in the style of the Cosmati.

Pulpit in the Cathedral at Messina, Sicily.

The Cathedral (S.M. Nuova) was founded by Count Roger in 1098, and was finished by his son Roger. The interior is 305 feet in length, and is a Latin cross with three aisles, separated by twenty-six columns of Egyptian granite said to have been taken from the temple of Neptune at Faro; they have gilt Corinthian capitals. The roof is of wood and is a restoration by King Manfred of an ancient roof burned in 1254 at the funeral of Conrad, son of Emperor Frederick II, the canopy over the corpse having been so high that the lights by which it was crowned set fire to the rafters. The three apses are filled with fine mosaics.

The pulpit of white marble is attributed to Gogini, and the font near it to Gaddo Gaddi of Florence.
