An enclosed place where the priest hears confessions. It is usually composed of three adjoining compartments, the middle one for the priest, the side ones for penitents. The priest communicates with the penitent through a square opening, covered by a grating. When hearing a confession on one side, the priest draws a shutter over the opposite grating in order to insure privacy for the penitent.
