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.
In the Greek alphabet, in which the New Testament was written, alpha is the first letter and omega is the last. In the Book of Revelation, God says, “I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last,” meaning that God remains from the beginning to the end of time.
The letters “I H S” are a symbol for the name of Jesus. In the Greek, the first three letters of Jesus’ name are “ihv,” which in english is “his.” It is said that many early Christians, possibly in keeping with Jewish traditions, refused to write the names ‘Jesus” or ‘God’ in full so they used symbols or contractions instead. IHS or IHC is drawn from the first three leters of ‘Jesus’ in Greek.
