Did you know . . .
The stole, called an epitrachilion in Orthodox churches, is a long, narrow rectangular garment that is worn around the neck so that it hangs down in front of the wearer’s legs, ending below the knees. The stole originated as a sort of kerchief; people used them as a general work cloth, for polishing things, and for wiping sweat from their faces. They came into the church, probably as a cloth that the celebrant could use to clean the Communion ware as part of the service, and for that reason, the stole became a Eucharistic garment.
