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. The look of the stole evolved over time. They gradually became narrower and more ornamented with symbols.
The cross is one of the earliest and most widely used Christian symbol. In the most broad sense it symbolizes the religion of Christianity. More specifically, it represents and memorializes Christ's death. A great variety of crosses have developed, some with specific symbolic meaning and others that have simply become culturally associated with certain groups.
