Chasuble

A religious clothing article of the Christian clergy. For more information and images please click here:

The chasuble is an article of religious clothing worn by members of the western christian clergy during masses where they present the Eucharist.

The chasuble itself is a loose fitting garment that drapes over the body and has only a hole for the head. The cloth drapes over the wearers arms rather than allowing for sleeves or armholes. Because of the very loose fit, a chasuble is never worn by itself; rather it is the outermost garment in a many layered outfit worn by members of the clergy.
