Excerpt from Why and Wherefore?: Simple Explanations of the Ornaments, Vestments, and Ritual of the Church
There used at one time to be a funny bit of Ritual in use in one church at Brighton, where there was a high pulpit and a long ﬂight of steps up to it. The verger used to follow the preacher right up the steps and carefully shut him into the pulpit and fasten the door. It did not seem at all funny then, because one was used to it; and there was meaning in that bit of Ritual I It meant this: The sermon is a most important part of the service, and to add to the dignity of the preacher and his discourse he has a servant to wait on him at the time when he is going to deliver it.
