Rose window

A large circular window similar to a flower, characterised by ornamental motifs (small arches, banisters) arranged in rays, open at the centre of the façade of the Romanesque and Gothic church. Early-Christian basilicas did not require such a solution, as they were built to acquire the largest quantity of light possible from the large windows in the load-bearing walls. See the imperial basilica of Trier.
