Trumeau (trumeau)

A trumeau is a central pilier (pillar) or meneau (mullion) dividing the door opening of a portail (portal) of a church in two parts in order to create an intermediate support for a linteau (lintel).
The picture shows a trumeau in the portal of the cathédrale (cathedral) of Autun.
