Altar Bell

Altar Bell

Originally uploaded by acgeal

Another important instrument found on an pagan altar is the altar bell. The bell is used to call the Airts (Four Quarters, North, South, East and West) or the Elementals (Earth, Air, Water and Fire).

It is tolled three times in each Quarter of the sanctuary to call upon the Arts and to release them, as well as the Elementals.

The sound of the bell is also said to purify and drive away negativity, bringing in positive forces for magical workings and rituals.
