The refectory door, with its chevron pattern surround.
The Prieuré de Saint-Cosme has a well preserved refectory, with a lovely Romanesque doorway and an interesting pulpit (une chaire romane in French). A monk would be stationed here at meal times to read to the assembly below as they ate.
A composite pilaster in the reading niche.
Access to the niche is via the arch on the left. The reader would go up a short curved staircase and sit looking out over the assembly from the larger arch on the right.
