1910 New Catholic Dictionary - Doors, Closed
(Greek: thyron kekleismenon, the doors being shut) An expression associated in particular with Christ's apparition to the Apostles both on Easter Sunday evening (John 20:19) and again one week later (John 20:26). Our Lord thus manifested the subtlety of His glorified body by which He was able to enter the room, "the doors being shut." In the parable of "The Ten Virgins" (Matthew 25) occurs the expression "the door was shut," indicating the security of those within and the exclusion of those without, or as Saint Augustine says "where enemies do not enter nor friends go forth." The plural "doors" is usually employed because the oriental door had two leaves.
Easton's Bible Dictionary - Doors
Moved on pivots of wood fastened in sockets above and below (Proverbs 26:14 ). They were fastened by a lock (Judges 3:23,25 ; Song of Solomon 5:5 ) or by a bar (Judges 16:3 ; Job 38:10 ). In the interior of Oriental houses, curtains were frequently used instead of doors. The entrances of the tabernacle had curtains (Exodus 26:31-33,36 ). The "valley of Achor" is called a "door of hope," because immediately after the execution of Achan the Lord said to Joshua, "Fear not," and from that time Joshua went forward in a career of uninterrupted conquest. Paul speaks of a "door opened" for the spread of the gospel (1 Corinthians 16:9 ; 2 co 2:12 ; Colossians 4:3 ). Our Lord says of himself, "I am the door" (John 10:9 ). John (Revelation 4:1 ) speaks of a "door opened in heaven."
