Anon Lil 62VII l. 4

sæti — a seat


2. sæti (noun n.; °-s; -): seat < tígnarsæti (noun n.)


[4] Hvert Ágætir í tígnarsæti: Hverr vann sigr? Skapari manna 99a, 705ˣ, Hverr vann sigr nema hjálpari manna? 622, 713, Hverr vann sigrinn? Skaparinn manna Vb, Hverr vann sigr? Skaparinn manna 41 8°ˣ, 4892


[4] tígnarsæti ‘seat of honour’: In Stjórn, it is the word used for Solomon’s throne (Unger 1862, 551, 561); Oddur Gottskálksson (Sigurður Nordal 1933) uses it to translate cathedras in synagogis (‘high seats in synagogues’, Luke XI.43, XX.46). He uses the analogous tignarstóll for sedes maiestatis (Matt. XIX.28) or sedes magnitudinis (Heb. VIII.1), the ‘seat of majesty’, from which Christ will judge the world.
