|NOTES||Use generally for partitions set up in religious and Roman Imperial buildings or outdoor areas between sacred and profane spaces or between certain Imperial and public spaces; use specifically in Jewish contexts for partitions in front of Torah shrines, especially in Byzantine and earlier periods, and in Christian churches for partitions separating the chancel from the body of the church, particularly when the chancel does not also include a choir. Use "choir screens" for the screens around the choir when the choristers are seated in the chancel area. For screens separating the sanctuary from the nave in Orthodox Eastern churches, use "iconostases."|
