The choir pews of Riga’s medieval cathedral, some of the oldest items of church furnishings, were created shortly before Reformation and have been preserved till the present. A pair of such pews was usually placed opposite each other in the altar choir, next to the south and north walls. Monks or priests sat there during services.
