Record Type: concept
iconostasis curtains (<coverings and hangings for religious building fixtures>, <coverings and hangings by location or context>, ... Furnishings and Equipment (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Curtains located behind the royal door of an iconostasis, separating the nave from the sanctuary. Some Eastern churches have only the curtains without the iconostasis. In Christian theological interpretation, the New Testament reference to the rending of the temple curtains at Jesus' death came to signify his passing through the heavenly boundary, thus the curtain was continued in certain liturgies.
