In Egypt?[edit]

I moved the following unsourced and apparently unlikely text here, as it seemed to be undercutting an otherwise serious article (Wetman 23:44, 24 September 2007 (UTC)):

In the Ptolemaic period of Ancient Egypt the cella referred to that which is hidden and unknown [citation needed] inside the inner sanctum of a temple, existing in complete darkness, meant to symbolize the state of the universe before the act of creation [citation needed].


Greek & Roman Temples[edit]

The statue is situated away from the rear wall, as there is another door leading to an inner chamber there? So...how is the statue oriented; usually? In other words, is the god facing the entrance/facing away from the inner chamber or is the left side facing the entrance, and the right side facing the inner chamber? (or vice versa?)

Second question: Is there a ratio of length:width:height of Greek and Roman temples that was standardised? I read (citation needed) that the width MUST be half the length, and the height MUST be the same as the width. Is this confirmed anywhere? Confuzed! 76.171.211.8 (talk) 09:27, 19 July 2008 (UTC)

Naos is a star[edit]

The redirect from Naos to Cella seems to be very weakly motivated if "cella" is the usual term. ... said: Rursus (bork²) 10:55, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

Mesopotamia[edit]

Anyone object to me adding a section on the cella in Mesopotamian temple architecture? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Zoweee (talkcontribs) 17:00, 18 July 2011 (UTC)

Content split: Yup'ik definition given its own article[edit]

Seemed like this page is about the classical definition of "cella". Thus, the paragraph about the Yup'ik defintion of the word "cella" seemed like it ought to be in its own article. I have simply copied the paragraph that was originally in this article, so I make no claims about that paragraph's validity (only that it belonged elsewhere). — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ahnrenene (talkcontribs) 07:05, 31 May 2012 (UTC)
