  1. Cenacle

    The Cenacle (from the Latin cēnāculum, "dining room"), also known as the Upper Room (from the Koine Greek anagaion and hyperōion, both meaning "upper room"), is a room in Mount Zion in Jerusalem, just outside the Old City walls, traditionally held to be the site of the Last Supper, the final meal that, in the Gospel accounts, Jesus held with the apostles. According to the Christian Bible, the Cenacle was a place in which the apostles continued to gather after the Last Supper, and it was also the site where the Holy Spirit alighted upon the eleven apostles on Pentecost.The site is administered by the Israeli authorities, and is part of a building holding the so-called "David's Tomb" on its ground floor.


  1. Cenacle

    The Cenacle, also known as the "Upper Room", is the site of The Last Supper. The word is a derivative of the Latin word cena, which means dinner. In Christian tradition, based on Acts 1:13, the "Upper Room" was not only the site of the Last Supper, but the usual place where the Apostles stayed in Jerusalem, and according to the Catholic Encyclopedia "the first Christian church". Thus the Cenacle is considered the site where many other events described in the New Testament took place, such as: ⁕the Washing of the Feet ⁕some resurrection appearances of Jesus ⁕the gathering of the disciples after the Ascension of Jesus ⁕the election of Saint Matthias as apostle ⁕the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the disciples on the day of Pentecost

Chambers 20th Century Dictionary

  1. Cenacle

    sen′a-kl, n. a supper-room, esp. that in which the Last Supper was eaten by Jesus and His disciples. [Fr. cénacle—L. cenaculum.]
