From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Plan of a Latin cross church, with presbytery position highlighted.

The presbytery is the name for an area in a church building which is reserved for the clergy.[1]

In the oldest church it is separated by short walls, by small columns and pilasters in the Renaissance ones; it can also be raised, being reachable by a few steps, usually with railings.
