'''''Refectory''''' in Orthodox Church usage generally refers to the dining room in a [[monastery]]. This dining facility is also called a '''trapeza''' (Greek: literally "table," also "refectory").
Some refectories may be free-standing buildings. Alternately, a refectory is joined to an extension of the building in which the [[altar]] is placed, as in regular [[church]] buildings. An example is the trapeza at the [[Holy Trinity-St. Sergius Lavra]] north of Moscow, Russia.
