Thecensersor also called turbules strong>, are containers to burn incense that is used in certain religious celebrations. They are known in Judaic antiquity and even in Egyptian and Greco-Roman times, they were adopted by the church from the first centuries, as evidenced by historical documents and by figurative representations in frescoes and miniatures of codices from the High Middle Ages. But it does not seem that any of them are preserved before the 12th century. The first censers must have had the shape of an urn with a perforated lid and from the aforementioned paintings it is inferred that since the 10th century they took the shape of a globe and had to be handled with three or four chains. Since ancient times incense is considered in a religious way as a purifier or purifier (from the point of view of magical thinking) as one of the elements of exorcism in various religions.
Censer bearers during Holy Mass are calledturiferous.
