|Notes of Interest: Thurible|
Vessel for incense, consisting of a metal pot with holes in its lids suspended from a chain. The
chain allows the pot to be swung gently, releasing smoke through the holes as the incense burns. It
is carried in processions and can be used to cense the gospel book, the altar, the celebrant and
Eucharistic ministers, and the congregation. The term is derived from the Latin word for
"incense." Also called a censer. A thurifer is the person who handles the thurible during services.
