  St. Julien: Nave
The columns of the nave alternate between plain capitals with square abaci and decorated capitals with octagonal abaci.
According to a couple of sources, all the decorated capitals of the nave are plaster reproductions dating from 1651, and the other capitals were left plain at this time for the sake of economy, but I found it difficult to tell if this was true or not.
It is believed that the nave was originally intended to have Gothic rib vaults, because the unused columns on the two compound piers on either side of the nave look as if they were put there specifically to support the ribs of the nave vault.

  Nave - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The nave of a church, whether Romanesque, Gothic or Classical, extends from the entry—which may have a separate vestibule, the narthex— to the chancel and is flanked by lower aisles separated from the nave by an arcade.
The nave, ecclesiastically considered, was the area reserved for the non-clergy (the "laity"), while the chancel and choir were reserved for the clergy, and a rood screen (cancellus) separated the sanctuary from the nave.
Nave also refers to the hub of a wheel, as in "bowl the round nave" from a subplay of Hamlet.

 Cathedral diagram - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Beyond the crossing where the transept intersects the nave are the choir and the presbytery which may be a single space and the sanctuary, site of the high altar.
When cathedrals are enlarged, the nave may be extended and a narthex added, the choir may be rebuilt with an ambulatory and chapels, but most usually the consecrated place that is the sanctuary remains at the same place.
At the far east end, on the axis formed by nave and sanctuary, a larger chapel is often dedicated to the patron saint of the church, or to Mary, the mother of Jesus, this in medieval English usageis a Lady Chapel.
