or LICH-GATE (Anglo-Sax. lie or lice, a body or corpse), i.e., corpse- gate, is a covered gate erected, especially in England, at the entrance of a churchyard, beneath which the persons bearing a corpse for interment were wont to pause, sometimes to read the burial-service under this sheltered place. It is also applied to the path by which a corpse is carried.
