WORKING AND SLEEPING IN THE EAST WING
The conclave, once only accessible to monks, includes the cloister (a roofed passage around the monastery's central courtyard) and adjacent rooms for the monks. The east wing, which connects directly to the church, housed the monks' sleeping quarters, the dormitory. The work and common rooms, such as the chapter house, the parlatory (or speaking room) and the refectory were located on the ground floor. The monks would gather in these rooms, converse and pursue their spiritual endeavors.
