It is the part of church set aside for the laity, and formerly the nave used to be separated from the sanctuary by a rood screen. The area where the nave crosses the transept, known simply as the crossing, belongs to both the nave and the transept equally.
In post-Reformation church architecture, pews or chairs are placed in the nave.
