The High Altar at the Basilica of St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church, Dyersville, Iowa.


An altar is a place, often a table, where a religious event happens. Altars are used in Christianity and in other religions.

In some old religions, the event was a sacrifice, which means a holy work. Usually the priest would use this item.
