In most Western churches to be found, if too often simplified and Reformed, the Roman basilica main features: vestibule, cows (with or without crypt), tvärhus or transverse, or cross arms, nave or longitudinal, relationship, and often one or more towers.
The apse was originally intended for the bishops' throne, the throne, but later became a frequent site instead of the altar, which was moved from the middle cross. The Romanesque churches in Sweden has almost invariably vestibule.
Koret (körrummet or singing room), including the apse of the Romanesque churches were originally available only for the clergy.
