>Yes, and that is why in a few churches in Greece, Plato and Socrates
might be found depicted without a halo *in the Narthex*. They gave
glimpses of the truth, and perhaps prepared the Greeks to accept
Christ, but are not of the church, therefore found only in the
narthex. However, it is not Orthodox tradition to depict non-saints
in the nave of the church where we worship surrounded by the those
whom the God has revealed to the Church as saints.
