WITH LOVE FROM EBAUMS WITH LOVE FROM EBAUMS WITH LOVE FROM EBAUMS WITH LOVE FROM EBAUMS WITH LOVE FROM EBAUMS WITH LOVE FROM EBAUMS'''''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. ==External links==*[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Refectory Wikipedia: Refectory]*[http://www.musobl.divo.ru/refect_e.html The Refectory with the Church of St. Sergius (1686-1692)] [[Category:Monasteries]]
