Porrigere is the Latin equivalent of 'to reach out'. It also may be translated as 'to stretch out, extend'. The first person singular of the present indicative is 'porrigo'. The 'i' is short, and therefore pronounced like the 'i' in the English personal pronoun 'it'. That same word 'porrigo', but with the 'i' pronounced long as in the personal pronoun 'I', is a feminine gender noun that means 'dandruff, scurf'.

Why were early christians not allowed to read the bible?

the earliest christians were able to read the bible...if they could read. Once the bible was translated to latin in the vulgate, it became out of reach for most believers. This was done because latin was the language of the educated. What kept them from reading was not that they weren't allowed but that they didn't have a bible and they couldn't read latin.
