The Cathedra of the Archbishop of Manila

The cathedra or the Archbishop’s “chair” is a sign of his teaching office and pastoral authority in the local church.

The present cathedra, installed during the postwar reconstruction in 1958, is made of the choicest Italian marbles and was designed and crafted in Rome through the Istituto Internazionale d’Arte Liturgica. Recently, the original Mexican onyx was revealed and restored.

The new carving of the coat of arms of Cardinal Jose Advincula was imposed on top of white Indian marble.
