In religious art and architecture, an abat-voix (from French abat-voix, or sounding-board) is a sort of canopy which is placed above a pulpit and which serves the purpose of reflecting the preacher's voice toward the audience.
Borrowing from French abat-voix, from French abattre (“to beat down”) + voix (“voice”).
