    How to use "Chancels" in context?

    Churches from the Latin word "cella" meaning "chamber" or "room" are believed to have started off as simple, private spaces within the larger Roman temple. Gradually, as Christianity began to take root, bishops and wealthier members of the community began to demand more space for worship. This led to the development of separate rooms or "chambers" specifically dedicated to the Christian god and his worshippers. These rooms became known as a chancel.
