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.
In Christianity, the Crown of Thorns, one of the instruments of the Passion, was the woven chaplet of thorn branches worn by Jesus before his crucifixion. It is mentioned in the Gospels of Matthew (27:29), Mark (15:17), and John (19:2, 5) and is often alluded to by the early Christian Fathers, such as Clement of Alexandria, Origen, and others.
