The word stole comes from the Latin stola
which itself is a derivative of a Greek word which means “garment.” The stole was originally a kind of scarf that covered the shoulders and front of the body. Wearing of the stole by clergy was adopted by the Church of Rome about the seventh century and developed into a mark of dignity. The look of the stole evolved over time, gradually becoming narrower and more ornamented with symbols.
The most well known cross is the Latin cross
, which to Christians, represents the cross of Christ's crucifixion. When shown with the image of Christ, it is called a crucifix.
The shape of a true Latin cross, when folded, creates a cube, an ancient symbol of earthly authority.
