Maya Christians and Their Churches in Sixteenth-Century Belize

In this chapter, attention turns back to material culture and to the architecture of early churches in Yucatan, central Mexico, and Belize. “Church” is defined, with all the implications this entails. Terms applied to churches as well as to church typologies are reviewed. Particular criticism is reserved for the widespread use of the term “open chapel” or capilla abierta. Terms used for the different parts of church interiors are defined, such as “chancel,” “sanctuary,” and “choir.”

Keywords:   Church, chapel, capilla, chancel, sanctuary, choir, open chapel, capilla abierta, atrio
