Gates, Holy

Gates, Holy the name given to the folding gates in the center of the iconostasis, or screen, which, in the modern Greek churches, separates the body of the church from the holy of holies. The holy gates are opened and shut frequently during the service, part of the prayers and lessons being recited in front of them and part within the adytum.
