English term or phrase: on the lintel
In the Romanesque period, at a time when the Church sought reform but also faced a new worldliness in a growing and more prospering society, the symbolism of the entrance to the sanctuary was given emphasis by images and mainly by sculptures. The most modest form of sculptural decoration on a church portal would be a cross or an image of the Lamb of God on the tympanum or on the lintel.
