Faldstool 

Backless chair with arms or stool that can be used for sitting or as a prayer desk. The term is from the Latin, "folding stool." It is portable, and it may or may not fold. It was historically used by a bishop or prelate who does not occupy the episcopal throne in the sanctuary. The term may indicate a prie-dieu or litany desk.
