WHAT DOES UMBRACULUM MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Umbraculum

The Umbraculum is a historic piece of the papal regalia and insignia, once used on a daily basis to provide shade for the pope. Also known as the pavilion, in modern usage the umbraculum is a symbol of the Roman Catholic Church and the authority of The Pope over it. It is found in the contemporary Church at all the basilicas throughout the world, placed prominently at the right of their main altars. Whenever The Pope visits a basilica, its umbraculum is opened. Umbraculum from Saint Servatius Basilica, Maastricht, Netherlands. Translated from the Latin language into the Italian language, it is known as an ombrellino or in the English language as an umbrella. It is shaped as a Baldachin-type canopy with broad alternating gold and red stripes, the traditional colors of the pontificate. It also featured a staff with small bells, which often chimed to announce the arrival of a pope travelling by horse and carriage. The controversial Borgia Pope Alexander VI was the first pope to use the umbraculum as a symbol of the temporal powers of the papacy; royalty during those days commonly walked outdoors under a canopy.
