miserere

miserere, misericord.
1. Mercy-seat, subsellium, or miniature ledge on the underside of hinged medieval choir-stall seats, so that, when the seats were folded upright, the misericords could give support to a person standing up. It had a carved corbel-like element under the ledge, frequently representing everyday life, comic episodes, fantastic creatures, fables, and even indecencies. Excellent carved medieval misericords survive, e.g. in the Parish Church of St Laurence, Ludlow, Salop.

2. Room where monastic regulations were relaxed.
