German term or phrase: äbtisch
Unfortunately I can't give a lot of context here as the sentences before and after are simply about a conference that is being held and this is a one-liner about the conference venue.

Im ehemaliger äbtischer Thronsaal tagen die 180 Mitglieder des Kantonsrates.

Thanks for any hints or tips!

Prince abbot or prince-abbot

Prince abbot or prince-abbot also in J. Murray Luck's "History of Switzerland" - the hyphen seem optional
