An Orthodox Church Building's Layout...

Several readers mentioned that they would be interested in learning more about the layout of an Orthodox Church. I found a few articles that will explain some of the main parts of an Orthodox Church better than I ever could:

Orthodox Church Building

Holy Doors

Altar

Iconostasis

Narthex

Nave

If anyone has any more questions, I would be happy to answer them or find the answers someplace else.

Thanks for this interesting post. One word I've heard put around is 'stacidia' or something close to that. Do you know what this means?

Someone told me the OC is a recreation of the OT temple. Is this correct?
