Misericord in Dalmeny Kirk
Misericord in Dalmeny Kirk
During religious ceremonies it was sometimes necessary for participants to stand for long periods of time. Their seats were often designed so the they could be turned up and provide a shelf to rest on. These are usually carved, sometimes with extravagant and sometimes distinctly non-religious images, and the carvings, being on the undersides of the seats, are not usually visible. This fine example is inside the very pulpit itself for the comfort of the minister while preaching.
