 The Pskov chapels not only replaced churches in poor villages, served as markers on roads, and indicated halting points. They also served as places of repose for the dead before burial. This was a very wise decision, for many peasant houses in those distant times had only one room where the family lived. In the chapel the dead could lie in solemn and appropriate surroundings.
