Altar Frontal and Superfrontal

A frontal is a decorative piece, usually of cloth, metal, stone or wood, which hangs or is placed in front of the altars of some Christian Churches. It is sometimes called an antependium, but the latter is a general term that can be used for any piece of textile, metal or stone hung or placed in front of other church items as well.
