Rood Screen

Rood Screen, a screen separating the choir or chancel of a church from the nave. Above it was a gallery supporting the rood, and called the rood loft. The rood screen had no upper loft, or solar. In early times it had three doors, one facing the altar, the second fronting the gospel side, and a third the epistle side. Before it veils were dropped at the consecration.
