It is the zone of a church accessible by the laity.[1]Contents1 Description 2 Etymology 3 History 4 Record-holders 5 See also 6 ReferencesDescription[edit] The nave extends from the entry—which may have a separate vestibule (the narthex)—to the chancel and may be flanked by lower side-aisles[2] separated from the nave by an arcade.
