Natural light penetrated the church through the high clerestory windows and the windows of the facade, but since liturgical rites were also held in the evening, additional lighting was necessary. Many different types of devices were used, some of which were quite elaborate. On the tables stood bronze lamp stands, which supported oil lamps. In some cases, the stands were so tall they could be placed directly on the floor.
