a stool folding like a camp-stool, formerly used in the inthronization of bishops, and in coronations, both for sitting and kneeling. In modern times the name is (improperly) given to a small stool at which, in some English churches, the Litany is read. In those churches in which it is used it is generally placed in the middle of the choir, near the steps of the communion-table. The name is probably from falden, plicare, and stoul, sedes. Maskell, Monsum. Ritualia, 3:86; Siegel, Alterthiimen, 2:453.
