Refectory Table: a very long and narrow table with trestle-like legs which are joined by a low-slung stretcher. It was originally used as dining tables in the refectory, or rather dining hall, of monasteries during the medieval era. Secular use of the table spread to the Mediterranean and the rest of Europe during the late 16th century.
