Thursday, October 14: Q: The church has a section called the “narthex.” What is this?
A: The narthex is a transitional space from the
outside world to the church’s interior. It also serves
two other primary functions. First, it is a vestibule—
a place to shake the snow from boots
or remove a hat or drop an umbrella.
It is also a place where processions can assemble.
For this reason the narthex is also known as the
“galilee,” since the procession from narthex to the
altar symbolizes Christ’s journey from
Galilee to Jerusalem for the Crucifixion.
More to come next weekend...
