Soul Seat

Soul seat, that place where the friends of a departed Christian, in the Middle Ages, offered alms, at or near the high altar, for the use of the clergy, the benefit of the Church, and for the good estate of the departed soul. While offering; they recited the psalm De Profindis, and then a versicle and response, asking for eternal rest and peace for the person passing away.
