Religion
Norwegian term or phrase: sokneprestembete
Context: Marriage certificate (vigselsattest).

"Attesten er utskrift av vigselsboka for:
Sokn: XX sokn
Prestegjeld: XX sokneprestembete"

"sogn" = "parish" and "prestegjeld" = "clerical district", but I have not been able to find an official translation of "sokneprestembete".

agree  jeffrey engberg: see vicar, church of england. This term is specific to England, but I like it!

  -> Thank you very much!

neutral  Christine Andersen: The vicarage is the vicar's private residence, and not the official place where the marriage would be registered. There were and are strict regulations about where registers were kept, normally in the church, not in the house.

benefice


Explanation:
For præsteembede in Danish, Gyldendals Røde Ordbøger suggest

living, benefice, incumbency.
http://ordbog.gyldendal.dk/sitecore/content/Ordbog/Home/Opsl...

I would call it a benefice in this context.
The sokneprest is the parish priest, but if he is the priest in charge of the benefice, then the word parish is superfluous in English.

You can check in EN-EN dictionaries which fits best.

agree  jeffrey engberg: disagree: benefice doesnt define the priest/position, which would actually be beneficiary...
18 hrs
  -> The context is a marriage certificate, which states which parish(es) the parties live in and in which church the marriage was registered. Benefice = Church office (Concise Oxford Dictionary)
