the Sistine Chapel: Door in Marble Screen That Divides Nave for Laity from Presbytery for Clergy

Door in Marble Screen That Divides Nave for Laity from Presbytery for Clergy

Door in the marble screen that divides the nave for the laity from the presbytery for the clergy. They were originally two equal sections, divided by this screen and a pattern of floor mosaics. In later years, the screen was moved to make the nave smaller and the presbytery much larger.
