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; stoles gradually became narrower and more ornamented with symbols.
