Desk in the Church of England, a raised seat, otherwise called a "reading-pew" (see rubric before "Commination"), set up in the body of the church, from which, since the beginning of the reign of James I, it has been appointed that the daily morning and evening service should be read, the chancel having been used for that purpose before the above period. In the Protestant Episcopal Church of the United States there is no rubric on the subject.
