  CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Clerestory
Home > Catholic Encyclopedia > C > Clerestory
clerestory, similar internally to that found in the great Egyptian temples, but externally requiring such a change of arrangement as was necessary to adapt it to a sloping instead of a flat roof.
This seems to have been effected by countersinking into the roof, so as to make three ridges in those parts where the light was admitted, though the regular shape of the roof was retained between these openings.

  Clerestory - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Clerestory or ("clear storey"), in architecture, denotes an upper story of a Roman basilica or of the nave of a Romanesque or Gothic church, the walls of which rise above the rooflines of the lower aisles and are pierced with windows.
In Gothic churches, the clerestory is generally divided into bays by the vaulting shafts that continue the same tall columns that form the arcade separating the aisles from the nave.
The term "clerestory" is equally applicable to Egyptian temples, where the lighting of the hall of columns was obtained over the stone roofs of the adjoining aisles, through slits pierced in vertical slabs of stone.

The windows of the clerestories of Norman work, even in large churches, are of less importance than in the later styles.
In Early English they became larger; and in the Decorated they are more important still, being lengthened as the triforium diminishes.
The Romans also in their baths and palaces employed the same method, and probably derived it from the Greeks; in the palaces at Crete, however, light-wells would seem to have been employed.
