Portuguese term or phrase: casa de provisão
old Portuguese (16th century):
"..estando alí o collegio e caza de provasão, se levantara dia de Paschoa.."

I know what it is, I just need to know if there is an exact "ecclesiastical" equivalent in English. If anyone knows of a good resource for ecclesiastical terms (PT/EN/IT) I would be very grateful for the tip. Thanks.

Just cross-reference a Bible in Portuguese with one in English and you\'ll get it.

\"4 And he built Tadmor in the wilderness, and all the store cities, which he built in Hamath.
5 Also he built Beth-horon the upper, and Beth-horon the nether, fenced cities, with walls, gates, and bars;
6 And Baalath, and all the store cities that Solomon had, and all the chariot cities, and the cities of the horsemen, and all that Solomon desired to build in Jerusalem, and in Lebanon, and throughout all the land of his dominion.\"

(Old Testament | 2 Chronicles 8:4 - 6)

Store city or store house, it\'s just a matter of size...

No special religious meaning.
