A stole (also known as the orarium) is the name of a Christian liturgical vestment in the western Churches. The term derives from Latin stola, in the meaning of equipment, array, clothing. A stole consists of a long band of cloth that is about 250 x 10 cm in size, whose ends may be straight or broaden out.
