English term or phrase:bema
Extrait d'article de revue religieuse, portant sur l'archéologie biblique :
"So for all the questions biblical archaeology has created and left unanswered, it has nonetheless contributed substantially to the historicity of the Bible. Discoveries such as the water tunnel beneath Jerusalem dug by King Hezekiah; the Pool of Bethesda, where Jesus healed a crippled man; the stone in the Roman theater at Caesarea inscribed with the name of Pilate; the bema at Corinth, where Paul was tried; and the amphitheater at Ephesus, where the riot of silversmiths occurred, to name a few, help to give historical credibility to the Bible."
Explanation: I suggest you leave it "bema"; it's a Greek term designating the "The platform from which services are conducted in a synagogue" www.answers.com
