Nave

In basilicas it is the central or lateral longitudinal space between the rows of columns or pilasters and the perimeter wall.  The central nave, which is generally larger, is also called the “nave” and the side naves “little naves”. The use of several side naves, as is the case in the church of St. John in Lateran or St. Peter’s in the Vatican City allowed for a higher number of the faithful to be called to a special place of worship for God’s People.
