Spaces for friars and nuns

Haude Morvan

Preliminary notes

Texte intégral

1This book deals with the internal divisions of mendicant churches. To avoid misunderstanding, the word choir (chœur, coro) is always used strictly to refer to the stalls of the religious community, and the word sanctuary (sanctuaire, presbiterio) to refer to the space around the main altar.

2Some local specificities are referred to with a distinct vocabulary, such as chancel in Irish churches, or ante-coro in nuns’ churches in Castilla. These specific terms are explained in the relevant essays.
