Narthex or atrium

A porticoed atrium in front of the entrance to a church were the catechumens and penitents would stay in ancient Christian liturgy. It may be divided into the endo-narthex, the space inside the church or the exo-narthex, the space of the so-called portico in front of the entrance door. The Cathedral of Monreale shows an example of the second case.
