Encyclopedia > Refectory

A refectory is a dining room, especially in monasteries, boarding schools and academic institutions. One of the places it is most often used today is in graduate seminaries. To some today, it is considered somewhat pretentious. It is derived from the Latin reficere, which means to remake or restore, via Late Latin refectorium, which means a place one goes to be restored. A monastery is the habitation of monks, derived from the Greek word for a hermits cell. ... A boarding school is a self-contained educational total institution where students not only study but where some or all students may live. ...
