The sedia gestatoria would protect the Pope
#15
Security concerns aside, I would like to see it brought back simply because it is more traditional.  (And I really don't want to have some smart a** point out what the popes in the 7th century did.  You know what I mean by "traditional.")  It wasn't dropped because of security concerns.  No, like the coronation, it was dropped because it was seen as too "triumphal."  Bah.  The pope stands at the High Altar and says Mass.  He's a pretty easy target up there too.
