EUCHOLOGION STAND, a small movable desk of wood for supporting the euchologion on the altar during the service of offering the incense and the divine liturgy. It is similar to the Latin missal stand, and is called in Arabic qarrayah.
Its use is not general and apparently began in modern times only, since in early and medieval times, the priests used to memorize their liturgical prayers. Many priests prefer to place the euchologion directly on the altar, sometimes putting another book as a cushion under the euchologion.
