Pilate's House

The Praetorium, or Pretorium, is the Latin version of the Greek word pronounced prai-tor-ion. The Romans [see Ancient Empires - Rome] originally used the term for a general's tent in an army camp [see Roman Legions], but later it also referred to a military headquarters in a city where the Roman governor or procurator also often resided. The Bible variously refers to the Praetorium as the "common hall," the "governor's house," the "judgment hall," the "palace" and "Pilate's house."
