This article has excellent material from the Catholic Encyclopedia. It would be good to clean up the article and properly format it (including wikification). A section also should be added at the end of the article on changes since Vatian II, i.e., free standing altars, the issue of liturgical orientation, etc. However, the excellent historical information on the traditional Latin Rite altar should be preserved within the article.

Anyone else feel this article is a bit bloated?[edit]

To me, it seems this article might have too much information. It makes it feel a bit bloated.--Minimidgy (talk) 22:37, 3 December 2008 (UTC)

Also, it appears that much of the information references old documents form before Vatican II. The article appears to talk almost exclusively about Tridentine Rite altars. Perhaps rules regarding altars used in the Mass of Paul VI.--Minimidgy (talk) 22:45, 3 December 2008 (UTC)

Yes, it is put together from old Catholic Encyclopedia articles. Like all that material, it needs editing and updating. Charles Matthews (talk) 22:51, 3 December 2008 (UTC)
Yes, indeed, it is very outdated. Caeruleancentaur (talk) 16:43, 21 March 2009 (UTC)
