Altarage is a term once in common use in the Roman Catholic Church. From the low Latin altaragium, which signified the revenue reserved for the chaplain (altarist or altar-thane) in contradistinction to the income of the parish priest, it came to signify the fees received by a priest from the laity when discharging any function for them, e.g. at marriages, baptisms, funerals. It was also termed honorarium, stipend, and stole-fee.
