Parekklesion

   A chapel, free-standing or attached, along the side of a church, or located within a church's upper story. Perhaps the most famous parekklesion is the one built alongside the Church of the Chora Monastery in Constantinople (qq.v.) which contains frescoes (q.v.) important for the study of 14th-century monumental painting.
