Tower. Hebrew, Heder, about a mile to the east of Bethlehem, where the angels appeared to announce the birth of Christ. St. Helen built a temple there in honour of the angels. (Tirinus)
Shepherds had such places to keep watch. (Calmet)
There was a tower of this name near Jerusalem. (Micheas iv. 8; St. Jerome, q. His.)
